 See related article, "What's the sunspot number?"   Image of the Sun showing at least 4 sunspot groups. The notch taken out of the Sun at the right of the image represents a (very) partial solar eclipse seen in Houston on that day. The eclipse was not total anywhere on Earth. The cloudy areas near the top and the bottom of the image are, in fact, clouds. Credit: Bill Pellerin
