For the first time in 10 years, we went a whole month in February without a sunspot. But I found one in March.

I pointed my telescope at this spot for 2 hours a few days ago trying to come up with a cool animation. But nothing actually happened. But I got a few nice still pics in. Just below the sunspot and to the right, you can see a little bit of a solar flare.
