so is that mercury or venus to the left of the sun?
 Quoting: Soliloquy


Neither. As I just showed, there's nothing really there at all. The telescope would have easily been able to see that if it were there. It's just a filter flare caused by a reflection of the sun between the filter (the platter of a floppy disc) and the camera lens. It's not really there.

Happy easter everyone! Here's some live video of the sun:

Not much in the way of sunspots, one at the top of the disc with some nearby faculae.
 Quoting: Astromut


all i see is a BIG ball of fire!


wtf!?

 Quoting: Soliloquy


It's getting harder to see the sunspot as the sun gets lower and the atmosphere gets more turbulent.

 Quoting: Soliloquy


Actually it can be since it's a floppy disc. The shape of the floppy (the platter inside a floppy disc really is floppy) determines where in the image the reflection will appear. As you rotated the camera and floppy, the reflection will rotate. In fact, if you don't hold the floppy steady, the reflection will dance all around in the image.

it might prohibit others from trying to seek

The sun is setting, so I went ahead and reconfigured for normal viewing for a high quality look at Venus. On June 5-6, depending on where you are, Venus will pass in front of the sun in the final Venus transit of our lifetimes.
[link to www.transitofvenus.org]

PSA note: NEVER look at the sun without safe filtration. Safe filtration does not include floppy discs. The demonstration I did today was only with my cell phone camera, I did not stare at the sun through the floppy disc. That is on the hairy edge of "safety" in the infrared; you can't see it, but it can cause thermal damage to your eyes, the floppy disc is not designed to properly filter sunlight in the infrared. If the cell phone camera burns out, small loss, but it's not worth your eyesight.

Nothing but itself, it goes through phases like our moon as it passes us in orbit.

Show note, there is an ISS pass later tonight at 9:30pm eastern time, a little less than two hours from now. I'll get the scope ready to track it and we'll observe the space station. Unfortunately I'll need to move the scope a little to do that, so once it gets dark the show will pause while I reconfigure.

An important note, ISS will pass into earth's shadow during the pass, at 9:34:24 pm eastern, so we'll have about 3 minutes of visibility at most from the time it rises over the trees to the time it fades out, so be there promptly if you want to see it live.

I just found some more on Landscheidt. Do you have any

thoughts on this, Astromut?

clip
"Lanscheidt’s approach was novel, he considered cyclicities to

be working as ‘wheels within wheels’ whereby longer term

cycles cause phase reversals in shorter term cycles when they

reached maxima and minima at times when the shorter term

cycles are vulnerable to a switch in state. Analysing

datasets of solar proton events and large flares, he uncovered

a rhythmic pattern in their appearance, which linked their

occurrence to planetary cycles."

I think I've heard similar theories before, perhaps even that theory in particular though I couldn't have told you the name behind its modern incarnation. It is an interesting theory, though honestly I haven't had the time to dig into it deeply and see if there's any real statistical correlation there or not. Right now my desktop's busy chugging away at computing the potential of 2011 AG5 to impact us, but that's another story for another thread and another day.
