The large facula with the sunspots is moving out of view at this time, the four dark regions towards the north west limb are still with us and a broadened filament and dark region are visible between them. Groups of small prominences are along the north west and southern limbs. Individual prominences are visble near the west and east symbols. The largest prominence is 'T' shaped and near the south symbol.

No sunspots visible at this time, but still a bright facula in the north west quarter and smaller ones in the south east quarter, with filaments. Groups of prominences are visible around the limb in each region with at least one significant one in each.

A cornucopia of prominences of different shapes and sizes on the limb today especially in the south east. Groups are also to be found at the north pole and due west. A few filaments are visible within the disc. The clouds took over or was it just the wine, before I could study the disc further.

Not a great deal of activity within the disc this morning a filament visible near the north pole and a facula near the south pole with filament. There are numerous prominences around the limb the largest in the south west quarter.

Again various prominences around the limb, two small groups around the north pole, a large question mark shaped one in the north east and a longish spike in the south west accompanied by two smaller ones. A long snaking filamentary region is visible towards the South pole. One or two other dark filamentary structures are due east and south. Where have all the sunspots gone?

The long filament and accompanying facula are nearer to the south west limb today. Sections of the filament are clearly broad. Another filament in the shape of an arc is in the south east quarter. Prominence groups are in all but the south east quarter. One group in the north east quarter has a very long and short thread and a large peak with two smaller ones.

Hi Les,
Thanks for the support, however the sunshine is often very short lived I'm afraid.

We still have the large facula region and filaments, but they look diminished. Prominence groups are in all regions around the limb. A loop is on the north east limb, peaks on the south west limb and a box shape due North.
