16-01-2021 STEREO + AR2796

Hello Sun-Gazers. This morning heralds a restart to AR's taking-over from the 12-day quiet spell. The South-central spots (started to appear yesterday) are now numbered AR2796 and as the SDO image shows at 10:55z today. The oncoming and large approaching AR to the S.E. Limb is expected to cross the ...

Re: January 15 2021 Observations. Spots!

Yes James, the SDO images clearly shows the layout of the twin-spot areas. Far too early to say whether these might grow larger and even flare, but certainly ends the +12-day blankness at last. Let's hope also the the oncoming S/E-AR at least will also blossom into something worthwhile... Thanks for...

15-1-2021 TWO SUNSPOTS - SOUTH CENTRAL at 2000hrs-Z

Thanks to a post-reply from Dan, SDO are now showing the two spots in the South-Central area, which itself has been am area of possible activity over the last few days, so at last it is awakening with the 'spots.' (No need to call the doctor this time)... Also looking at the S.E. to N.E. areas - not...

Re: 15-01-2021 EAST-AR HAS RECEDED, BUT S.E IS LOOKING GOOD

Thanks Mark, Dan, Eric, Alexandra and James. Indeed Dan at 2000z there are two clear spots in the South Central region as the attached SDO images show and who knows possibly some more from the AIA image. Also note that on the SE beyond the limb, as well on the East and North East areas some prominen...

15-01-2021 EAST-AR HAS RECEDED, BUT S.E IS LOOKING GOOD

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Eastern AR has diminished over the last 24-hours and is no longer active. But the large and approaching S.E. AR is looking promising for it's appearance on Sunday-onwards. Let's hope that a longer quiet-spell is not in the offing. At least the proms are still occurring fo...

Thanks Alexandra and you and everybody is most welcome.
Besides at least whilst the low-down Sun here + the exceptionally bad weather prevents me imaging, at least to forecast and admire the images that other have been able to take - keeps me occupied...

14-1-2021 Thursday EASTERN AR IS STILL ACTIVE ON LIMB

As expected the first of the new AR's is now on the far-eastern-limb and SDO shows that it is active today. Small but hopefully will remain active. The large AR approaching the S.E. should become visible by Saturday and hopefully will end the present quiet surface-features spell... CLEAR SKIES Terry

Re: 13-01-2021 LATEST STEREO IMAGE & FORECAST

Thank you Stu and Mark, I wish you some Sun, but I certainly would not forecast it yet, as there is currently a small high-pressure region in the SW of the UK, as shown on the latest charts which may or may not help observations...
