Here is the animated Gif of the aftermath of the C1.0 flare.  I cannot believe I am spending this time on a  C-class flare.  But it has been a while since we have had one and even longer for me to capture such a flare in an animation, or the aftermath of one.  Click the image to load and activate the animation. This is 15 minutes of flare activity in AR2665.

Clear skies and good seeing today.  This was going to be a quick observation today, but it turned out different.  Solar Activity was Very Low until AR2665 released a C1.0 flare.  My first image caught the end of the flare, so I had to capture the aftermath of the event in an animated gif which took a lot more time.  Solar Activity is Low with one C class flare in the last two days.  AR2665 covers an area of 140 millionths today and has 6 spots.  The filaments of yesterday are still there, but are deteriorating fast.  I did not observe any prominences at the time of my observation.
