Another spotless day with a small prom at the NE limb and a small filament near the Northern limb.

Thin clouds covered the sky but the images came out all right.  The Sun is still spotless, but I found two very small reverse polarized areas.  One at -27 degrees, the second at -22 degrees.  I made composites showing the areas in CaK and a close up of the 27 degree area in a Ha close up.  Also, the filament in the North is still nicely visible.

Good seeing this morning, however, the Sun is spotless.  The proms from a few days ago are now showing as filaments near the NE limb.  So I made a close up of this area.

The sky cleared up late this morning.  Today full disk images of a spotless Sun.  The current spotless streak is at 5 days, bringing us to spotless day 432 since solar max.

Since I could not observe because of cloudiness, I put a composite together showing the prominences at the NE limb from Easter.  It covers the days from4/17 (all the way at the right) and Easter 4/21 through 4/24 (moving from right to left).  And because the way they are located in the composite, I call it the Easter Egg from 2019.

Another spotless Day.  However, the prominences keep coming!

Clear skies this morning with good seeing!  A spotless day but the proms are still visible at the NE limb.

Another day with clear skies and average seeing.  Whereas yesterday I could make out the faculae associated with AR2739, today the Sun was totally blank for spotless day 428 since solar max.  However, the proms that could be seen at the NW limb yesterday showed up higher today as it seems to be turning from the far side of the sun towards the visible hemisphere.

Clear skies after 3 days of clouds.  Seeing was below average and I had trouble focusing the full disk CaK run.  AR2739 is still visible but AR2738 has rotated to the far side of the Sun. A few small filaments can be seen in the Northern hemisphere and some nice prominences are visible at the NE limb.
