2014 Oct 14-30, Daily Sunspot Tracking

It’s been several months, but I finally had the opportunity to process and animate a 17-day daily sunspot tracking sequence from October. It features AR2192, the beautiful large active region that caused a stir that cycle.

White card stock, superfine black felt-tipped artist pen, 0.5mm mechanical pencil, processed in Photoshop and orientated so that north is up, west is right.
