Nice to know that somewhere on this planet peoples still see the sun and some activity at it!

Really nice images, Alfred! Thanks for sharing.

And Happy New Year! May this year be a solar activity revival.

Hi Alfred...

Great set of images to kick off the new year...nice work :bow

Nice to see that the small region to the NE of the larger region of activity continues to develop...it was just a small dark spot when Imaged the other day but it has been in many of the Ha/CaK images posted since then.

Happy New Year,
Brian
