Over the last several months, since 2019 June at least, I have been keeping a casual eye out for sunspots. Today (2020-01-29) I was rewarded with my first sighting of one in that time and thought I ought to record the fact with some snapshots. Among several images I like this one with the arrangement of cloud, the Sun’s disk and the spot itself.
