eclipse glasses are cheating :-)

I've only seen a naked eye sunspot once. It was just over a year ago (11th Sept as it happens). Driving to work, the sun was just rising through the Dallas Metroplex smog and haze, easterly-heading road gowing down hill with a clear view to the east.

Considering I was driving, I couldn't look too closely, so this gives you an idea of how clear the sunspot was! Some good luck on my part - just enough smog and haze. A bit earlier and it would have been too dark, and a bit later and it would have been too bright.
