AR2826 & AR2824 Grouping & Animation | May 26th 2021


Recommended Posts



I should have gotten up early today, I did not expect that disturbance yesterday to become a monstrous sunspot today! It dwarfs anything we've seen since 2019 I think. Almost a great spot. Too bad it will now leave our view after tomorrow. We did some visual today and enjoyed seeing the spot near the limb in a white light view from a 120mm aperture scope, the big penumbra area of 2826 is impressive to see visually, not like the little spots we're used to. Quite a lovely region! Took a last minute stab nearly at sunset tonight to get an image of it before we packed in for the night.
