Might take a look, they were very easy to spot.
I cleaned the lens and the filter twice so these spots MUST be on the Sun

That is too early for me to head south, but a bunch of us are also going to be in Little Rock, AR October 30- November 6th. Any chance you can meet up with us there?

Kansas has gotten Quite Hazy... I am feeling like it followed us home... Looked at this smoke map because Bob didn't think it was from all those wild fires... if you scroll down, It appears it is fro the wildfires.
