Mark at Beaufort

Sun today (20th) in WL and Ha (updated by Web info)

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I received a new 10mm Celestron Duo eyepiece to mainly use in my PST+ DS and the 80mm finderscope.

The unnamed sunspot has an active region with some nice plage. Some small amount of activity around AR2735. There is a filament nearby and a few proms around the edge. 

In White Light AR2735 (remnant of solar cycle 24) is nearly at the centre. The other is an unnamed sunsport with 3 areas - why no number?

Anyway its good to view activity in both WL and Ha.

Photo attached showing WL set up with PST in the background.

I notice that the unnamed sunspot has now been recorded as AR2736. This is a statement on SpaceWeather.com.

Space weather is predicting some Aurora activity for Saturday.

Just managed to get a look at it through a brief gap in the overcast sky. Very complex detail and areas of flaring, pity it's soon to go round the corner.   😎

Had a look in both WL and Ha about an hour ago. Nice sunspot in WL but in Ha its showing some activity. Very bright plage so hopefully if the sky remains clear we will be able to get a longer look.
