Thanks to Andrew for the heads-up about the solar activity and sunspots, including a massive one!
If you want to see some other truly amazing sun photos, visit Andrew’s “Above the Clouds” blog at http://bongo69.wordpress.com/. 🙂
Today we broke out my telescope and managed to locate all of the pieces and parts necessary to photograph the sun in all her glory, particularly the solar filter! (Otherwise, not only would you go blind, but you’d fry your camera and telescope equipment.)
Lots of clouds rolled in, but I am thankful for getting several good shots. And more thankful to dear hubby who patiently got the sun in view and in focus. You’d think finding a huge golden orb would be easy, but it’s not!
