Looking at Sunspots

As I mentioned yesterday, those that came to look carefully at my 1" telescope were really fascinated by the project.  This young woman came along, and was amazed that she could actually see sunspots which the telescope projected on to a piece of paper.  I pointed out that there were four spots in two separate groups, and she said "There is another one right there!"  And she was right!  I had overlooked the fainter spot.  If you can see it, it counts!  It doesn't hurt that she has much younger eyes!
