spotted spots!

Sis shares her Google Photos with me and I have a little daily look-see.

Spotted a smokey Sun in her online gallery.

I zoomed in and panned.

Uh huh.


Sun through smoke

The original shot.

Canon PowerShot SX420 IS, ƒ/5.6, 1/160, 83.33 mm, ISO100.

cropped Sun

Cropped with GIMP.

The large sunspot is very obvious. There is a gaggle of spots along the top edge of the sun, vertically oriented.

Pulled the annotated Sun image (21 May '23) from to ID the spots...

annotated Sun image from space telescope

The big spot is 3310.

Rotated the space telescope image about 65 degrees...

rotated SW image to match photo

So, the vertical grouping, top down is 3313, 3311, and 3314. 

I don't see the other spots, down at the 4 or 5 o'clock position. They may have turned away, actually...
