22-2-2021 AR2804 CONFIRMED AS NEW IN THE N.CENTRAL

Post by EGRAY_OBSERVATORY » Mon Feb 22, 2021 9:30 am

AR2804 images attached - show an interesting set of spots - just emerging this morning in the North-Central region. Not showing as flaring at present, but that can change - of course...

AR2803 has decayed and no longer visible to the east of AR2804.

No forecast available from STEREO as - still not available.

Prominences also make for an interesting day today, if the skies are clear...

Thanks Terry; all I have, currently, is an opaque sun poking through the thick altostratus.


Call me Geoff.

I do what I do because I want to, and because I can....

Doesn't mean I know what I'm doing, though!

Thanks Geoff and the weather-satellite imagery shows that you should be clear of most clouds this afternoon.

Excellent Nigella and looking forward to seeing your results.

Still cloudy here, so making some F-stops for the ETX-125 to try out whenever...

Cheers

I just got them visually through gaps in the clouds. I'll post the report very shortly.

Indeed the second newbie in a day is AR2805 in the South-Central region.

Was hoping to try the first-light imaging with the ETX-125 and R2 Imaging System today, but clouded-out all day, so completed three f-stops instead.

Yes Mark and Alexandra, the Sun has awoken (for now at least)...
