Perfectly maddening


Tiny jigsaw pieces of sky between clouds before the rain came in.  I gave up on the solarscope but because the 5″ tracks I was able to take a few glimpses through the Baader filter.  No good photos though, just a fuzzy one.


Standard warning for non-astronomers:

Never look at the sun with your naked eyes, and especially not through any optical instrument such as binoculars or telescope as this is likely to cause permanent blindness.  The photo was taken through an astronomy grade white light filter  – never attempt to make a filter yourself.
