Hi All:

The old AR3664 that was 15 earths wide, has come back around as AR3697. While the spot group doesn't appear to be as big as before, it's already thrown out two X-class flares.

I got lucky this morning. I go out early while it's still cool outside (in Phoenix). I start in H-alpha, and about an hour later I finish in H-alpha. This morning it was well timed to catch the X1.4 flare, at 8 o-clock on the disk.
