Decent Sunspot

Recommended Posts

AR2222 is just over the CM in the southern hemisphere. Elongated lead sunspot visible to the protected naked eye. Anyone else confirm that?

H-alpha very quiet. Four small filaments counted. Small detached plasma cloud off the west limb and another small blob to the south of it and that's about it. Some brightish plage with AR2222 and AR2226 indicates they are still pretty active. New sunspot over the southeast limb looks quiet.

Great write-up :) Don't know about safety filter with eyeball but that spot is fab! Hope my grabs of it will come out okay. Not much in way of proms but the spot looked cool in h-a too. Had day off work and amazingly it was clear!
