Spotting the sun

Like cloistered monks in the Dark Ages who devoted hours of their lives to creating manuscripts that few could read, Steve Padilla sits atop Mt. Wilson and draws, maps and classifies the sunspots that have formed on this familiar star, adding to more than 28,000 daily drawings that date back to 1917.
