AR 2673 was a large sunspot group that formed in 2017. Clearly visible is the beautiful 'rice grain' structure of the paler, outer regions of the sunspots.
'This photograph stood out as a superb example of documentation of a phenomenon that played with representation by taking the black and white data and describing space and movement resonant of early magnetic feild and scientific analogue photography.' Sarah Pickering
