[Lux] Return of Sunspots

A bunch of sunspots has emerged following the recent conclusion of the solar minimum. Quoting one of my astronomer friends based in Western United States, a powerful solar flare now would be a fitting end to 2020… To that I say, don’t forget backing up your critical data and communication lines.

Anyways, here are two sun pictures taken between my teaching and office work this afternoon.

Speaking of the sun, this is the beginning of the third solar cycle in my life!

… And if you measure like that, human lives are comically short.

The two sun spots are on the top left … the rest of the texture was caused by clouds. 200mm
