Sunspots and a Partial Eclipse
In preparation of the partial solar eclipse of June 10th 2021 I took out the 15×70 binoculars a week earlier and had a quick look at our closest star. Since my attention goes out mainly to deepsky nowadays it had been awhile since I observed during daytime, but I was pleased to see some small groups of sunspots through the Baader sun filter foil in white light.
We were fortunate enough to have a clear sky on June 10th and during 2,5 hours it was a real treat to follow the moon crossing in front of the sun. The previously observed sunspot groups had shifted by now, but were still visible. The rim of the moon was not seen perfectly smooth, but had the impression of a sawtooth instead. The sketch below was done about half an hour before the maximum.
