Staring at the sun

An update from local astronomy buff Felton Davis...

We have located the "monster sunspot," and stared it down all afternoon!

A huge cluster of spots almost ten times the diameter of the Earth appeared a few days ago, and fortunately the skies cleared in time for a long session on Saturday afternoon. Many of my fans said they were disappointed that Thursday's eclipse was rained out, but this was something new for us all. Thanks to Ranjit and Chelsea for taking spectacular cellphone photos.

I'm almost certain that so-called "sunspot" is Ebola.

So the sun has a zit. Don't make a big deal out of it, it happens.
