Yes, with temperatures nearing 100 degrees (or more) over the entire western Washington area, I thought it would be fun to see what the sun looked like today. Interesting, there are no sun spots, no visible prominences and no areas of interest. Of course, we are at the tail end of a solar minimum so that's to be expected, but just last week there were sunspots and active prominences. I guess today we just get skunked. And baked.
