Forums General Discussion 2020 – how was it for you? I managed a total of 182

I managed a total of 182 visual observations of the sun, a little lower than my record of 198 set in 2014. Due to surrounding obstacles, I have only a couple of solar observing ‘windows’ each days, particularly in the winter. I do however have 366 days of radio data for detecting solar flares. A slow start earlier in the year, but cycle 25 has started to become more active in the autumn.

I did watch the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction getting closer, but then the clouds stopped play on the final day!
