Sun alert!

Seems the new active region AR2778 I imaged yesterday has intensified overnight.
SpaceWeather sent an alert this morning."
BIG SUNSPOT ALERT: There's a new sunspot on the sun--and it's a big one. AR2778 contains a dozen dark cores sprawling nearly 100,000 km across the solar surface"
Well it is clear here so will see what it looks like. Images encouraged!

Peter,
Thanks for the heads up.
Clouded out down here, but I hope others manage to observer this AR.

Cloudy here as well, not surprisingly. Have been checking the photos over on Spaceweather earlier today, the new spot looks impressive and has released a few C class flares apparently .
