sunspots

From yesterday morning, the 18th: I was with WU UD classmates in a linear yard like a railyard, in the mid-morning. The depots and yard pointed south, though it alternatingly also seemed like west; there were light altostratus in the sky, but I was able to see sunspots on the sun, and I was seeing it as if in a zoomed-in view. The sunspots were really extensive, and they were often streaky; this was my brain’s conflation of two things it had IRL read about in this article: computer simulations of sunspot mechanics and dust devil streaks on the surface of Mars.
