Location: Billingborough (South Lincolnshire, UK)

To: 2006-05-30 14:48 UT

Temperature: 13.5C ...
Dew Point: 4.0C ...
Humidity: 53% ...
Wind Speed: 6.8mph ...

Pressure: 1018.4hPa ...
Notes:

Mostly cloudy day, also quite windy too. During a brief clear spell I took the Solarscope out to do a quick sunspot count.

Sun

From: 2006-05-30 14:42 UT
To: 2006-05-30 14:48 UT

Between clouds I managed to count three spots in three areas (886, 887 and 891). Other than that I couldn't see any other markings, this wasn't helped by the fact that cloud and wind made for a rather tricky observation.


2006-05-27


Location: Billingborough (South Lincolnshire, UK)
From: 2006-05-27 14:40 UT
To: 2006-05-27 14:45 UT
Equipment: Solarscope
Temperature: 17.0C ...
Dew Point: 11.5C ...
Humidity: 70% ...
Wind Speed: 6.3mph ...
Wind Dir: South West ...
Pressure: 1014.2hPa ...
Notes:

The day had been overcast until mid afternoon and then it started to clear. As conditions improved I used a brief clear spell to take the Solarscope out to do a quick sunspot count.

Sun

From: 2006-05-27 14:40 UT
To: 2006-05-27 14:45 UT

I could see a single spot in active area 886 (similar to yesterday) and could also see two spots, near the limb of the Sun, in new active area 886. This area looked like it would be disappearing over the limb in the next day or so.

While I couldn't see any spots anywhere else on the Sun I could detect mottling where active areas 885 and 887 were reported as being located.

Notes:

Today has been a mostly overcast day but, late on in the afternoon, the cloud started to break up a little so I used a brief clear spell to take the Solarscope out to do a quick sunspot count.

Sun

From: 2006-05-26 16:10 UT
To: 2006-05-26 16:14 UT

All I could see today was active area 886 and that appeared to consist of just a single spot. No hint of 885 could be seen any more. This might have been down to the sky being quite hazy.

Through the Solarscope I could still see active areas 885 and 886. I counted a total of 4 visible spots, 2 in area 885 and 2 in area 886. Area 885 appeared to be less complex than yesterday's observation.

Through the Solarscope I could see two active areas (885 and 886). I counted a total of 9 visible spots, 7 in area 885 and 2 in area 886. Four spots in 885 stood out the most and they seemed to be arranged in a diamond formation.
