Location of Photo:

The location of my photo was Kolkata, India

Date/Time of photo:

I took the photo over 100 days, from 25th December 2020 to 3rd April 2021


To take this photo, I used my Nikon D5600 DSLR, Sigma 150-600c lens and Thousand Oaks white-light solar filter


I imaged the sun for 100 days in a row, from 25th December 2020 to 3rd April 2021. This image is a blend of a total 100 images showing every sunspot that has appeared on the solar disk over these 100 days. There were a total of 19 active regions, from AR12794 to AR12812. The sunspot activity is clustered in two narrow bands, approximately 25 degrees north and south of sun's equator. As the solar activity increases in the coming days, we are hoping to see more sunspot regions appearing on the solar disk.
