Things were not bad ... until the clouds moved in. Still, despite the clear skies the Transparency was rated Poor by the Clear Skies Chart for the area. Transparency is calculated from the total amount of water vapor in the air. Poor seeing or poor transarency doesn't make for good astronomical photographs. But, you take what you can get ... ie try to make lemonade out of lemons.

Sunspot 2882 there in the middle is a beauty. And, I haven't been taking photos of the sun for very long, but that prom up there at 1 o'clock is one of the longest I've seen.

A typical fall day ... intermittant rain, clouds, sun shining through a break in those clouds now and then, and an occasional rainbow.

Our sun is definitely waking up and on its way towards the next solar maximum. Our star will be at at its most active at that time. Predictions have it happening between November 2024 and March 2026.

There are quite a few sunspots visible in this photo. AR2866 on the bottom left is huge. AR2868 to its right is large, too. To the far right on the bottom is AR2863. Up top, far right, is 2864. Quite a few filaments visible, too. One is shaped a little like a bat. Guess Gotham City is trying to contact Batman.

The sky was reasonably clear last night/early morning, so I pulled another all-nighter. Got some decent shots of our moon ... and a few of Jupiter that I haven't looked at yet.

Mare Imbrium that you see here is thought to have been caused by a protoplanet that crashed into our moon over 3 billion years ago.

The Apollo 15 landing site is in this area. I should have marked it in Photoshop, but to get the general area, find the three craters (Archimeded, Aristillus, and Autolycus) in the lower right quadrant ... the large, medium, and small ones grouped together ... draw a straight line from the medium one ( Aristillus) to the small one (Autolycus), curve around the two mountains you see there and take a right angled turn into the mountain ridge. That's where it is ... near Hadley Rill.

Click on this a couple of times and you should be able to zoom in to see the detail.
