Hi all and happy New year.

On the sun there is a nice collection of spots heading for the limb.
Using my 120mm refractor, Lacerta Herschel wedge and Baader Solar Continuum filter, one large specimen displayed a fine dark umbra surrounded by filamentary penumbra.  Following close behind is a cluster of spots, I counted seven, of various sizes.  Trailing on their wake was a single spot, perhaps desperately trying to catch up.

A good start to the new year, with luck, it will be a good omen for 2021.


Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.
