Astronomic League: SunSpotter Award

I have received my third Astronomical League award recently. This is an interesting award that was based on observing and illustrating the changing position and shape of sunspots over 2 solar cycles.

Included below are 2 of the more interesting observations I made over the summer, showing multiple sunspots of different classes and scales. I watched this group of sunspots traverse the disk of the sun completely from one side to the other, as they twisted and morphed around each other, growing and shrinking as they aged.
