Sunspots Spotted

Caught these sunspots this morning. This is well cropped in, the full zoom version was overcooked sadly. I first thought this was a lens artifact but I shot two with same settings, both hand held with the sun in slightly different areas of the frame, and both have the same spots; Is this mission accomplished then Phil!?

SLIGHT CHANCE OF MAGNETIC STORMS: NOAA forecasters estimate a 20% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on April 10-11 when a solar wind stream is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field. Arctic sky watchers should be alert for auroras beaming through the waxing twilight of northern spring.
