It’s been a while that we had clear skies with no clouds in sight.  .  Solar Activity is Very Low with no C-class flares in the last two days.  In addition, the Sun is spotless again and the spotless count since Solar Max is now at 74. Despite the lack of spots, the Sun displays a very nice filament in the Southern Hemisphere as well as some nice not named regions.  Today full disk images as well as some of the close ups.

Lots of clouds but enough room between them for my observing session.  Solar Activity is Low with three C-class flare in the last two days.  AR2661 has deteriorated a lot and only covers an Active Region Area of 40 millionths today while the Sunspot count is at 2.

Cloudy skies this morning with a few sucker holes, just big enough to get a few images.  However the seeing was bad.  Since my last report we have had one more spotless day.  As AR2661 started to come around the Eastern limb, solar activity has picked up significantly.  In the last two days we have had 11 C-class flares, all in AR2661, accounting for Medium Solar Activity!  AR2661 covers an area of 60 millionths and contains 8 spots.  Today’s images contain close ups of the mentioned regions and full disk images as well as a few close ups of the not named region.
