Sun and Sunspots Seen Through a Solar Filter

The Sun as seen through my 10-inch Meade Schmidt Cassegrain telescope in Orlando, Florida on 3/14/89. This image was captured on Kodak Ektachrome 100 color slide film with a Thousand Oaks full-aperture glass solar filter. The large group of sunspots on the right of the image were responsible for one of the only knoen occurances of the Aurora Borealis in Florida.
