3 years apart- almost the same sunspot location
Today- April 13, 2019 (sunspot 2738) vs April 13, 2016 (sunspot 2529
with an airplane).

Well, here we are again... thanks to the instagram ( #wtz_worldtimezone ) reminder about my photo I took 3 years ago over New York city. Recent weather in New York has not been cooperative with overcast clouds and /or rain preventing a good photo of the sun.

Today I was able to snap this photo of the sun between the clouds with a and there it is... the new sunspot.
Sunspot 2738 is almost in the same location as sunspot 2529 was in the 2016 photo (exactly 3 years ago) I took with the WestJet airplane flight WJA2773 piloting by Scott Ferguson
Well, I know this is not a black hole images - however I thought it was quite interesting.
