Here’s a little (actually really big) thing to brighten your day. I have some new gear and new software I’ve been waiting to try, however, the sky at night has been less than cooperative. Yesterday I opted to use our favorite star for practice. I know, the composition sucks and the focusing could use a bit of help, too. Those black specs you’re looking at are all part of a rash of flares and eruptions on the sun, any one of which could swallow several planets the size of Earth.

So, in case you’ve forgotten what the sun looks like, here ya go. Let’s hope for clear skies, soon.
