Full disk 18-10-2020

Post by rsfoto » Sun Oct 18, 2020 5:14 pm

Hi,

Sunny in the morning and here the discs.

Now AR 12775 is putting on a show compared to AR 12776.

In White light easy visible two pores on AR 12775 and AR 12776 developed a nice spot divided in three with its Penumbra. Looking at it rememberred me a Yeti but a melting one :lol:

and today's Pareidolia bonus " Yeti is melting " or for some more warm hearted souls " It is Santa " :lol: :lol: :lol:

More yeti than Santa. :-) Looking at the west AR, looks like it could be a sunspot.

Indeed Dan, you have captured a new AR as (2777) in the far SW, so just a short time to image it more...

Thanks vm

I thought AR12775 had vanished from the disc. I haven't noticed it in a couple of days. Could it be something new?

Hi,

Just looked into Solar Region Summary and the bright Sun spot is AR 12775.

https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/solar-region-summary

Look at the coordinates South 23 West 88

WoW. It's still on the limb. It still shows up on SolarMonitor too.

I did see it today but did not recognise it as AR12775.

Absolutely fabulous images Rainer (as always you are a grand master :bow )

I was also confused with this active region. Yesterday on the SolarMonitor images this region is labelled as AR12775, from the 19th October images are labelled as AR12777. I am not sure whether this is an error or whether the region has been renamed?
