Prompted by this thread, I just took a look at the sun on the first occasion it has been readily visible for a few days.

The spot wasn’t visible to the eye at first, but was very obvious through 7x50B. Knowing a precise position, I was able to see the spot without the binoculars. My eyesight is not as keen as it used to be.

Before anyone starts panicking, all views of the sun were through aluminized milar film.
