Brilliant news, though typically the weather is not cooperating 😥

I saw AR2733 a few days ago and it has grown in size. Thanks for posting - hopefully it will be clear tomorrow.

Looks to be a notable WL patch to observe, well if the cloud parted I might!

Thanks for the heads up, if there's a break in the clouds I'll be having a look at this.

Sun spot, I wish I could spot the Sun, it's terrible here, again.

I am in the middle of the Sun observing season here, but it has not been that great, too much thin high cloud and not much "activity" on Sol.

I think that is why I posted, the excitement of something to view and image. 😁

Fantastic - weather not looking promising in London tomorrow either but great to see some activity - gives us hope for the rest of 2019.

Nice sunspot activity image you posted there.....

It would be nice to see a sunspot activity again that was similar to the ones seen traveling across the front of the sun in the following NASA SDO link captured Oct. 17-Oct 29, 2014.  The sun has been rather quiet lately.  Perhaps now we'll start to see a little more sunspot activity.....>

I managed to get about an hour on these in both Ha and WL this morning but it's blowing a Hoolie here so the view was jumping all over the place. 

Still glad to have got a look in though. Nice to see some detail in WL again.

Yes Ade it is blowing pretty hard but I also managed to view in both WL and Ha. AR2733 looks quite active in Ha.

No chance here, clouds, chilly north wind with rain in the air.
