Clear Skies with good seeing today.  Solar Activity remains Very Low with no C-class flares in the last two days.  AR2651 and 53 keep decaying further and the total Active Region Area for today is 150 millionths while the total spot count is at 6.  A nice but small hedgerow prom is visible at the SW limb as well as a small and faint prom on the NW limb.  Full disk images today as well as close ups of the mentioned regions.

Clear skies with an occasional puffy cloud passing by, but the seeing was good.  Solar Activity remains Very Low with no C-class flares in the last two days.  It seems that AR2651 and 53 are past their peaks and are starting to decay.  AR2652 still remains the same.  Total Active Region Area for today is 210 millionths and the spot count is 11.  Full disk images as usual and close ups of the mentioned regions.

Very nice stable and clear skies this morning.  Solar Activity remains Very Low with no C-class flares in the last two days.  We have three Active Regions today, AR2651, 52 and 53 with a total Active Region Area of 190 millionths and a total spot count of 9.  AR2652 keeps decaying and the two other regions seem to increase.  Today we still have the very nice filament in the NE quad, however the prominences have become a lot smaller.

Clear Skies with average seeing this morning.  Solar Activity remains Very Low with no C-class flares in the last two days.  The pore that showed up yesterday has been named today as AR2652, and covers an area of 10 millionths.  Total Active Region Area for today is at 150 millionths. and the spot count is at 6.  In addition a new good sized spot has come around the Eastern limb and has not been named yet.  The Southern filament is still there and we also have some nice prominences.  In fact the area around AR2651/2 looks very interesting in Ha.

Variable clouds this morning with below average seeing.  Solar Activity remains Very Low with no C-class flares in the last two days.  We have only one Active Region, AR2651 which has increased in size to 110 millionths and accounts for 4 spots. However, a pore has opened just East of AR2651 and we have a number of small prominences around the Solar disk

Clear Skies with average seeing.  Solar Activity remains at Very Low and AR2650 keeps further decaying.  I cannot make it out in WL but still see the faculae in Ha and CaK.  The filament in the southern hemisphere is decaying also. I checked some of the large observatories and they do not report AR2650, but SWPC still reports AR2650 having  a size of 10 millionths with one spot.   Images today include the mentioned regions as well as the full disk images.

An early session again with poor seeing and transparency.  Solar Activity remains Very Low with no flare in the last two days.  AR2650 does not show up in WL anymore so we probably are ready for another spotless day.  In Ha and CaK it shows some nice faculae.  The large filament is still with us today as well as some nice short prominences at the NE limb.

The clouds disappeared just before noon and the seeing is average.  Solar Activity remains Very Low with no flares in the last two days.  AR2650 remains a Csa region at 20 millionths and is back with 2 sunspots. The filaments in the Southern hemisphere look really nice and have grown in size and span over 200,000 miles end to end.  Today full disk images as most days as well as close ups of the mentioned areas.

Clear Skies this morning with good seeing and transparency.  Solar Activity remains Very Low as AR2650 is decaying and the old AR2648 is getting ready to turn to the far side of the Sun.  Total Active Region Area for today is 20 millionths and a total of 3 spots.  Today full disk images and close ups of the regions as well as the nice filaments in the southern hemisphere.
