A very quiet Sun, but at least you saw it. I hope the storm doesn't do too much damage to that lovely blossom :( is it a cherry? When do the citrus blossom?

Hi Pedro...

Your FD images are great :bow The disturbance visible in Ha and CaK looks so much like it wants to develop in to something more but seems to want to avoid attention ;)

The sights around the observatory are always nice to see as well as your visitor!!! The mare reminds me of the days when I first built an observatory on the farm when I was in high school. It was in the pasture that the dairy herd spend most of their time and I would have the occasions wet nose reach over to see what I was doing behind the walls :lol: I eventually fenced them away so I didn't have to walk through mid and cow manure to get in to sue the scope.

Thanks Brian

This mare behaves very strangely. It follows me around the place and lay on the ground just like a dog.

Sadly it's a decaying region, from AR12699 that rounded the limb at the start of february, it's just a patch of relic plage now.
