The sky was so hazy last night, I was able to photograph sunspots.


Julie noticed how orange the sky was, so she said we should go to Sunset Hill Park. As the sun sank, she could see a sunspot through her binoculars. I saw the second one after processing in Lightroom.

One is about 11 o'clock, near the left rim, in the bright band. The other is a little below the equator, about 1/3 of the way in from the right rim.
