December 25th – No Sunspots

The sun has been without sunspots for two days, but that is expected as we are heading to a minimum in the 11-year cycle.

Nevertheless as it was a nice afternoon grabbed the scope and did some observation of the sun.  A little of a challenge to focus when there is no contrasting details to base yourself on.
