Visibility V / V
I was just about to bite into a pumpernickel over a cup of coffee, when a Turku-based sun photographer gave me a tip about a good view in the sun. Thanks only to Jan Laasanen, it was indeed a memorable sight on the surface of our nearby star!
At first, the filming session seemed to dwindle as the clouds marched in, but in the end they just came to tease. Such large and spectacular eruptions can now be seen quite often when the maximum is approaching. Despite that, each time feels unique, as if you've never seen others before.

The picture was turned on its side, because it looked more rocky on the computer screen like this.
I added a timelapse, where the orientation is also completely different. The passage of the clouds can be seen in the picture as a characteristic flickering.
