Sunspot 2612

For a change Friday was a beautiful Sunny Autumn day here, just a few wispy clouds making it ideal to take a new photo of the Sun:


Sunspot 2612 can be seen towards the edge at about 8 o'clock.
Sunspot activity follows an 11yr cycle. We are now past the last maximum and their numbers will decrease over the next four or five years.

A gentle reminder that you should never look directly, or point a camera, at the Sun unless you are using a solar filter designed for that purpose. This is the one I adapted for use on the 70D:

Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
