Description

I used my lunch hour on Thursday to check out the Sun (the benefits of working from home periodically...). I wasn't disappointed and found the large filament and brights plages to be captivating subjects. The Sun has been showing more signs of life recently. Perhaps we're coming out of the solar minimum? Probably just wishful thinking.
