Clear Skies with below average seeing. The weak area from yesterday has increased and is nicely visible in Ha and CaK, however I did not see it in 540nm at the time of my observation.  When I checked the Big Bear Observatory’s report, which is one of the reporting facilities for SWPC, they did not report it either. Although it seems that a pore or spot started to form, visible in WL,  shortly after my observation.  Will see if it shows up on SWPC’s SRS report for today. In addition, a few prominences were visible at the NE, NW and SW limbs. We now have reached the same number of spotless days (24) in the current streak as the previous highest streak, which ended July 21st.

Clear skies but windy this morning,  with seeing below average.  The pore  which was reported a few days ago has disappeared and shows as a small very weak region still visible in Ha and CaK.  In addition we see two nice prominences in the NE and SW and a few small filaments to the NE of the mentioned weak region.  For the rest the sun is quiet.

Clear skies while the sun was obstructed by my neighbor’s trees. When the Sun cleared, the clouds moved in.  I was only able to get full disk images through some holes in the clouds, although they were impacted by the moving clouds, and the session finished, when the low power in my laptop shut it down.  Another spotless day.

Clear skies with average seeing this morning.  The Sun is still spotless on spotless day 324.  We can make out a few small filaments in the South, and some faint proms in the NE, NW and SW.  In addition in Ha and CaK it looked like a small plage wanted to form, just to the East of the central meridian.

Clear skies with good seeing conditions.  The Sun shows very little activity.  Today marks the 16th day without spots in the last streak of spotless days, and only some small and faint NW proms and some small filaments can be observed near the Southern and NW limbs. Other than that, the sun is quiet

Clear skies this morning with good seeing conditions.  Spotless day 320 shows a few filaments in the center and near the southern limb.  A nice prom has emerged at the NE limb.  Images include the mentioned areas as well as full disk images in the three wavelengths.

Clear Skies this morning with good seeing.  The Sun remains spotless but we still see the small filament in the center, but the one at the southern limb is very hard to make out.  We also have three proms in the NE, SE and NW.  Yesterday late the sun broke its 16 day streak of no flares when an A1.0 flare was observed around 18:30 UT.

Clear Skies again today.  The Sun remains spotless.  However, the proms at the NW and SW limb still show nice.  Also a new filament shows up near the SE limb.

Clear skies with good seeing on my first observing session in CR2210.  Almost nothing to see today on spotless day 317.  Except for a few very small filaments in the NE quadrant and two small and faint proms on the NW and SW limb, the sun is blank today.

Clear skies with below average seeing.  No spots on spotless day 313. However, the filaments and proms keep showing at the higher latitudes, and today is no exception.  These are signs of being close to solar low.  Today’s images include a closeup of the filament at the NE limb, as well as some faint proms at the SE and NW limb.
