  1. Very cool shots. What are the white splotches and what filter did you use to visualize them?

    • Good question! I know about the umbra and the penumbra, but those white spots are called faculae. I do not know what they represent.

      I used a hydrogen line filter on a Lunt Solar Telescope.
