July 6 Sunspots

Capturing this sun and sunspots photo is enduring the heat of the sun, that triggers my interest to investigate if it has relationship to the heat we are suffering now.

My research says, sunspots are temporary phenomena on the Sun's photosphere that appear as dark spots compared to surrounding areas. They are caused by intense magnetic activity, which can affect the Sun's energy output. While sunspots have been linked to variations in solar radiation, they are not the primary driver of the heat we are experiencing today. The Earth's rising temperatures are primarily due to human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation, which have led to increased levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. While the Sun's activity can influence the Earth's climate, human-induced climate change is the main contributor to the heat we are facing.

So I hope we will pay more respect to the planet we live in and do something that can cool it down to start with planting trees. As far as I know it is the cheapest and most effective way to combat the heat we are facing at the moment.

sun filter, seestar

I took 1.5 minutes RAW video and stacked it in seestar, then uploaded the photo in Adobe Bridge and processed in photoshop. I increased the sontrast and resized.
