A high resolution spectrum of a large - sunspot umbra is used for identification of two bands and of the - system of the FeH molecule, in addition to the previously identified bands and of the same system. The spectrum was obtained with FTS of the McMath-Pierce Solar Telescope of NSO/NOAO at Kitt Peak.
