Observation Notes:

The Sun in white light is starting to get interesting. Active regions 1057 and 1059 put on an interesting show at the end of March. Although I observed in late afternoon, the seeing cleared up frequently enough to show penumbral filaments in AR1057. Some of the neighborhood kids stopped by for a look and were impressed by the view of these striking spots on the Sun.
