Solar Activity 30 Jan 2020

First time in a few weeks managed to get some unclouded sunshine.
Like looking from the bottom of a swimming pool! Very unsteady seeing...
The AR 2757 still easily visible in CaK, Ha and as a small sunspot umbra/ pen umbra (with adjoining smaller spot/ pore) in White light.
There's another as yet un-numbered AR visible in CaK and Ha.
Not much in the way of bright proms...a couple of faint targets.

If you haven't seen a sunspot yet....now is a good time to set up your safe solar filters and have a look. Good practise for what is to come.
Images to follow.

Thanks very much for these updates Ken,
Now that I have my Lunt up to scratch (thanks indeed to you) I am using your reports to give me a base line of what to look out for.
Appreciated.
Peter
