While we can't look directly at the Sun with our eyes, with the right equipment we can view it safely through a telescope. That is what I did September 8 and was treated to many large "Sunspots" gracing the surface of the Sun. The spots appear relatively dark because they are cooler, a mere 6,300 degrees fahrenheit, compared to the 10,000 degrees of the surrounding surface. They are also quite large; the average sunspot is the size of the Earth.
