July 16, 2016: Nice spots and some flaring


Recommended Posts

Just had a quick look with the Lunt 8x30 SUNoculars, and spotted some pretty large spots trailing the big AR. I grabbed the SolarMax-II 60 DS, and after tuning spotted some flaring amongst these new spots. Several areas of bright plage dot the disk, and some dark filaments could also be seen. There is a delicate arcing prom in the north-west, and a thin long one in the north-east. Couldn't do any imaging, because the sun is rapidly sinking behind houses and clouds in the west.

That's a wonderful description Michael, I almost feel I was there - it got me quite excited!
