SDO imagery confirms that there are currently two small spots on AR2803 at the N.E.Limb at datum.

No other reports available today...

That's sounds correct Mark as this region has been flaring much over the last few days...
Not grand, but "Beggars can't be choosers" - I guess.

Thanks Alexandra and yes I have been watching your weather on satellite-imagery.

This morning here it was sunny, but by the time I had completed the power-supply wiring for the ETX-125, Revolution R2 Imager and DVR, the haze-layer and cloud prevented a first-light test outside. At least it is now ready to try outside when the clouds allow...

I did have a quick peep through the Zoomable WL Spotting-scope where I could barely see the spots - before that haze-layer spoilt the seeing.

Cheers
Terry
