This was supposed to be a picture of date and time on my computer desktop gadgets, but all I got was my own reflection due to the strong sunlight.
One large sunspot was near the center of the solar disk.
Looking high at the Sun.
I used the front leg of the tripod as a gnomon. The crack in the patio runs north-south. The shadow is not yet covering the crack.
Approaching high noon.
Clouds rolling in threatened to ruin my high noon observation. Shadows faded, but didn't disappear.
The Sun reached the central meridian, it's highest point, at 12:48 CDST, thirty-two minutes after solstice.
The Sun was now past the meridian, and I ended the observation.
