Just come in from a quick session with the sun... (first in a while)

There is an active eruption on the limb at 4 o'clock. nice a bright and I watched it grow and shrink in real time (nice)

There are some nice proms on both sides. Tall and thin variety. tried to imagine how tall they are compared to diameter of the earth.. (mind boggling)

Two small active regions with plage and some brightening but no sun spots.

There seems plenty of plage on the "coming around" side so I HOPE this means some spots & larger regions may be on the way in?

There are many small filaments scattered around with a good number at 12 o clock position. Couple of larger filaments on show.

The proms & the eruption were the highlights today.

Clouds cleared here but too late for solar. Good report.
