Last Sunday we had a warm sunny day, Mr HC and Son made the most of the largely cloudless sky and went out into the garden with their solar telescope. While they were out sungazing they captured the following image…The dark circle is a sun spot, and next to it a filament. The speckled surface is due to thermal convection cells, called ‘granules’.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This image was taken with a special Solar Telescope. Never look at the Sun with a telescope, unless it has a special solar filter fitted!
