Dear all,

I'm just coming in from the terrace where I did a charcoal sketch of the H alpha solar disc. We can see the active regions AR12806 (in the bottom) and AR12807 (a bit lower than the center). The sketch is left/right mirrored.

Eyepiece: Celestron X-cel 10mm
Date & Time: March 6th, 2021 / 1430-1500 CET
Location: home terrace, Dusseldorf region, Germany
Technique: natural vine charcoal on white Hahnemühle Ingres mould-made pastel paper

Clear and sunny skies!
