I take photos of the Sun on a daily basis when weather and schedule allow and send them to SpaceWeather.com, which is associated with the Marshall Space Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Once in a while my images are featured on their website. On the left side of the screen-capture above, my whole-disk sunspot image from yesterday was used to show current activity. Normally they use images from the orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory, but power issues at its base at Stanford University have temporarily taken it off line. Hence, amateur submissions are used in the interim. I find it fun to observe the Sun and exciting when the observations are used by this and other websites.
