What a joy to read a post like this :) I love the Sun pics but I think they may be upside down judging by how that jet is flying, otherwise I think the passengers were having a hard time :lol: If you load the avi into Registax (I use version 5) use the frame list to highlight only the ones you want....

Re: High latitude sunspot

Very interesting and exciting news. I think from now on we need to show the magnetogram image of the same time as this is the only way to identify the cycle change if the poles are reversed from Cycle 24 :hamster:
