The Sun 2014 October 21

Here’s my take on the giant sunspot AR 2192.

The features I find striking here are the linear streakiness seeming to emanate from a point W (celestial) of the group, manifested in its upper part, and the slightly lighter bridge running right across the main umbra. I used to think sunspots were only bi-tonal, but they are not. (Click twice to enlarge)
