The Sun over Port Orchard, Washington

Submitted by thenakedastronomer

Yes, it was a very warm day for the Pacific Northwest, with highs pushing 80 degrees in places.  And all that light and heat from from the sun - the glorious yellow orb in the sky. This is what the sun looked like today from a solar observatory in Port Orchard, Washington. No sunspots and only minor prominences too faint for this photo, but some intriguing surface detail. Gotta love everything about today in our little Pacific Northwest town!
