View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Soumyadeep Mukherjee in Kolkata, West Bengal, India, captured this photo of the sun on May 5, 2021. He wrote: “The bright sun after emerging from clouds. The hide and seek game continues as monsoons approach the Indian subcontinent. The image is a blend of two images. The first image, taken without a filter, captures the clouds along with the bright sun. The second image, captured a minute after the first one with a white-light solar filter, shows the photospheric details of the solar disk.” Thank you, Soumyadeep!

Bottom line: Two cool photographs of the sun, submitted by EarthSky readers.
