Staff Sgt. Erin O’Connell, a solar analyst with the 2nd Weather Squadron, Det. 4, creates a sunspot drawing from a projected image of the sun at the Holloman Solar Observatory on Sept. 24. Sunspots are temporary phenomena on the visible surface of the sun that appear visibly as dark spots compared to surrounding regions. The solar analysts closely monitor this information in order to safeguard and protect important assets in both civilian and Department of Defense agencies.
