A new Carrington Rotation has started today with clear skies and good seeing for a change. However, another spotless day, making it a streak of 28 days so far.  This makes it the 6th streak above 28 days in the current solar minimum, vs. 3 only in the previous minimum.  However, those steaks in the C23-C24 minimum were much longer than what we have seen so far. I will be watching how this continues. The area with filaments we’ve seen in the NW in recent days are approaching the Western limb and are starting to show up as some small proms.  Today a quiet Sun with a small prom in the NW and SW.
