Late observing today following an appointment in the early morning.  Clear skies with average seeing.  No sunspots today, but we did notice a small plage developing near the SW limb at 16 degrees South. As it turns out, this is  a reversed polarized (Cycle 25) plage. In addition a small reversed polarized area showed at a much lower latitude near the equator.   This follows the appearance over the last two days of a small reverse polarized area high up in the Northern hemisphere.  Will have to keep an eye on them.

In addition, a large but faint prom showed at the NW limb. Today full disk images as well as close ups of the reverse polarized areas.
