Possible new activity

Recommended Posts

Just had a look on GONG and there may be something on the oncoming limb, job to tell but here's hoping.

It’s an app for the iPad or iPhone. Find it really usefull and it has some really detailed info.

Solar Monitor Pro for iPad is the best but there is a lesser version Solar Monitor 3 for the iPhone.

Screen grabs from Solar Monitor Pro.

John,

Thanks for that.

Don't use an iPhone/ iPad so not much use to me but maybe helpful to others.

Pity they don’t do a PC or Android version. ☹️

Theres an android app called Space Weather Live. I use it to see if there are any spots for some white light viewing. Not seen my first sun spot yet so may set up this morning if it clears up!

Nice one Charl!

I've just taken a look beautiful blue skies here this morning  - great to see even a small active region!  Nice proms off both sides too.  Yesterday was very good too for proms, though was chasing gaps in the cloud.

Looking good around here. Will take a look when the sun has moved around a bit.

There's a wisp of a 'jet' like faint streak of a prom detached from the limb above the AR.

Some blue bits here, may get a look but no chance of imaging with the howling wind.

I got over 2 hours time of lapse footage of that region ? it was really active with flares earlier this morning 

Currently moved on to imaging the spot itself.

Damm the clouds. Just when I think it’s going to be clear another cloud gets in the way. And that’s when the wind isn’t trying to blow the scope over. 

One rubbish smartphone image but at least it shows there is a spot to be seen and did get to try the Bresser 127 Mak.

Either the seeing is appalling or I have a telescope problem - apart from the spot, disc is devoid of detail. Think you're right Charl, Mother Nature is playing with us

Viewed the area this morning with the PST + DS and White Light. Good to see some activity around the AR.

I had a good view this afternoon, sizeable sunspot with pronounced prominences above it.

The problem I have though , is that I only have a 20mm Televue plossl, I need a 40mm! Using my Borg 100 apo had me going in and out trying to find the sweet spot, but didn’t get the resolution I wanted, far too close for that, however I did see it well enough with my daystar.

 I also used my Orion short field with a Baader400 filter, again the eyepiece 20mm was wrong, so I opted for a Celestron 40mm plossl, better but boy was my eye dancing around to keep it in the center. Must get a TV 40mm!
