Clear skies with good seeing.  AR2736 is still visible at the western limb as it continues to decay, but will soon be on the backside.  A few small filaments are visible at the NE limb and in the southern hemisphere.  Total Active Region Area for today is 280 millionths and 12 spots. I also included a small composite of AR2736 of today.

Clear skies with average seeing.  AR2736 has grown to 420 millionths and contains 17 spots.  Overall however it seems to be decaying. A nice prom is visible next to the area at the western limb and a filament in the south.  Full disk images today and closeups of AR2736.

Clear Skies with average seeing.  AR2736 has been pretty busy and has evolved to a Dki area.  Since it popped up it has produced 11 B-class flares and 11 C-class flares so far of which the highest, a C5.6,  was observed yesterday. AR2735 has decayed and is now a plage.  Total coverage of AR2736 is 210 millionths and 28 spots and the Wolf number is 38.  Today full disk images and close ups of the active region.

Clear skies with below average seeing.  AR2735 has decayed to an Hrx area but we have a promising new Cro area, AR2736, which in the morning hours already produced a C-class flare.  Today full disk images as well as close ups of the two mentioned regions.

The skies cleared around 11:30 with below average seeing.  AR2735’s leading spots seem to hold on, and the coverage has not changed a lot.  The filament to the NW of the region looks interesting as well as a second very faint filament in parallel to it,  between the filament and the area. Total Active Region Area for today is 10 millionths with three spots.  Today full disk images and close ups of the mentioned regions.

A Clear Day with good seeing, and to top it off, a new Region just named AR2735.  In addition there are a few nice proms around the disk as well as a nice filament N of the new region.  Today close ups of the mentioned filament and new region as well as full disk images in the three wavelengths.

Clear Skies!!! :-) with average seeing.  AR2734 is still visible as a small Axx region near the Western limb as we start Carrington Rotation 2215.  It covers 10 millionths and one spot.  A small filament is also visible as well as a nice prom at the NW limb.  Other than that the Sun is pretty quiet.

Another day with clear skies and average seeing for a change.  AR2734 has evolved a bit more and now is a Cro area with 7 spots and covers 30 millionths.  AR2734’s magnetic poles did not rotate and the small bipolar area that now should be close to the meridian, has disappeared.  This leaves one reverse polarized area in the Southern hemisphere, which can be seen in the CaK image.  Full disk images today with close ups of AR2734 in three wavelengths.

Clear skies, but the seeing was poor.  The not named area from yesterday has now been named as AR2734 and covers 20 millionths with 4 spots.  Two days ago its polar alignment showed indications that it would turn to reverse polarization, however it has not done so yet.  So we have a spot that is aligned 90 degrees tilted from either direction.  Maybe an in-between area? However, the two areas in the Southern hemisphere which contain no spots, and are not named, still show reverse polarization.  Full disk images today as well as close ups of AR2734 in the three wavelengths and a composite.

Clear skies but cold.  The small area in the NE quadrant from yesterday has continued to evolve and shows some B class spots but no penumbra.  If confirmed by SWPC this would bring the current spotless streak with 33 days to an end.  We still do see the three reverse polarized areas we showed yesterday, but the positive polarization of the NE area has not turned to leading yet. So even if the spotless streak ends, its an interesting Sun.  Today’s images in the three wavelengths as well as close ups of the mentioned areas in WL and Ha.
