AR 2740 - just coming into sight!!!

Another large AR and sunspot is coming round the edge....
Looks like the making of another good show for solar observers...

I'd like to blame Ken too but, it just doesn't seem to want to stop raining in this part of the country...

Enough already... we've had our wet season... can we move on to the 'allegedly' dry or not so wet season now...

Just been having a nice visual and imaging session on the active area coming into view, AR2738 returning ! Seeing was good for daytime, had some nice steady views and there was noticeable change in the proms on the NW and SW limb and what looked like an small eruption from the active area on the eastern limb.
Very basic images I know and I'm eagerly waiting to see what Marke produces.

Sorry to hear about the weather down south and far north, if it is any consolation it has gone very cloudy here now.
