2014 January 7th – Solar Active Regions 1944 and 1946

Active region 1944 reached the middle of the solar disk today and produced an X1-class solar flare shortly after this eyepiece sketch was completed. For more info, please visit Spaceweather.com for the January 7, 2014 archive. This active region is so large that it could easily be seen with the use of solar glasses! Through a telescope, it burst into an amazing display of intricate details that was difficult to pull away from once the sketch was completed.
