If it was the ISS passing by that close I think it would burn up.

Thank you all!
I was thinking.. how come I cannot see those sunspot during sunset, sometime i can see the red/Orange sun goes down but I really can't see those spots, today the cloudy weather gave me a chance to record those spots,
My opinon for those black dots should be sunspots too, ofcoz there are so ppl said they are not, it seems something in the sky not move and steady.....

I up loading the last video "Three" at #1

Thanks for watching! enjoy

Very cool. Those must be some good size sunspots to be seen from Earth. Good catch, Thanks.

As "Hundroid" above me pointed out, they are sunspots. Hundroid provided the picture, but here is the spaceweather.com entry and articles for January 19 (the day you took your video).

spaceweather.com...

As mentioned above, the image on spaceweather is taken with a telescope, so it is a "reverse image" (mirrored). You can always go to spacewether.com if you want to see sunspot activity for any given day.

There is no such thing as a "gloomy" sun. Gloomy emits emotion. The sun is a thing. It does what suns do.

As for the OP, they are indeed sunspots, big buggers too, nice video.

I don't think they were moving south, they were stationary, the moving clouds gave the illusion that they were moving.

Your welcome...You know for all the criticism directed at ATS at times, the site does force us to use our heads for something other than a hat rack

Hey it's no problem, I've lost count of the amount of times, especially when drunk, that I have looked up at night on a partially cloudy day and thought Jupiter or other bright celestial objects were fast moving lights, only to realise it was the same illusion, heh.

That is really cool(or hot given the sun and all).I'm gonna put some welding goggle's on and go take a look see.


That works. My husband has a hand held welding mask, so I can hold it at the end of binoculars. I can clearly see 2 spots in the upper half of the sun.


It almost looks like they change shape a little, but it's hard to tell, I have to squint, I can only fit one binocular head into the mask. They don't look like they're moving at all, that was probably a cloud effect.
It's completely clear and bright here.
