Clear Skies today with average seeing.  Solar Activity is Very Low with no flares in the last two days.  AR2671 has evolved to an Fkc region and the number of spots has not changed and still is 20.  Total Active Region Area for today is 280 millionths.  Full disk images today with close ups of AR2671 and the small filaments near the Southern limb as well as a nice prominence at the NE limb.

A few clouds with less than average seeing.  Solar Activity is Very low today with no flares in the last two days.  AR2671, which now is an Ehc area,  has grown to an area of 380 millionths and contains 20 spots.  The small filaments near the Southern limb are still very distinct and both the NE and SW limbs show nice prominences. Full disk images today and close ups of the mentioned features.

A short session this morning.  Solar Activity is Low with 1 C-class flare in the last two days.  AR2671 is 170 millionths with 11 Sunspots.  We have a few prominences at the NE and SW limb and a few filaments.  Full disk images today in the three wavelengths as well as close ups of the mentioned features.

Clear skies with a few clouds and average seeing.  After AR2670 has turned to the far side of the Sun, AR2671 has now emerged at the Eastern limb as an Eai Active Region on the McIntosh scale, containing 11 Sunspots, and covering an area of 170 millionths. A few small filaments remain visible of which I imaged the NE filament.  Did not see any prominences. Full disk images today as well as close ups of AR2671.

Conditions went from intermittent clouds to light cloud cover with poor seeing.  AR2670 is arriving at the Western limb and is barely visible in Ha and CaK (probably because of the deteriorating sky conditions).  Total Active Region Area for today is 100 millionths and the spot in AR2670 is still a Hsx on the McIntosh scale. We still can see the filament near the S limb, and a few nice prominences are also visible.  Solar Activity remains Very Low.

Variable clouds today with below average seeing.  After two weeks of no solar observations, the Solar Activity is Very Low.  AR2670 is moving towards the Western limb and is currently 110 millionths and contains one Hsx spot.  A few small filaments can be seen as well as a few very small prominences. Solar Activity is Very Low.

Variable clouds and below average seeing.  After 2 spotless days AR2669 emerged.  A little larger than a pore and measured 5 millionths and consisted of two little spots.  In addition we could see some plages and some filaments.  Other than that activity stayed Very Low today.

Another day with variable clouds.  Seeing is above average today.  Solar Activity remains Very Low with no flares in the last two days.  The filaments are fizzling out but we still have some nice proms to look at.

Clear Skies with average seeing.  Solar Activity remains Very Low with no flares in the last two days.  Not much to see on the Sun except three filaments and some plages in CaK.  The solar rim looks more interesting with a number of prominences.  Today is Spotless day 82.

Had to wait until the very slow moving clouds cleared.  Seeing was average. Solar Activity remains Very Low with no flares in the last two days.  The two areas in the center look very distinct in CaK and in Ha.  In Ha we also can see the filaments as well as a nice number of prominences, especially on the Western limb.
