Visibility III / V

Antti Taskinen, Joensuun Seulaset

After weeks of cloudy, rainy and windy weather in Joensuu, it was nice to enjoy a moment of blue sky and sunshine. On that side, I watched the sun with a telescope, and especially its comma groups No. 2886 and 2887. I took a little video of these latter area and compiled a picture. Seeing was not very popular at the time of the observation, and there was a thin cloud of gauze in front of the sun before I could start filming. However, with the power of this observation towards the next cloud period.
