Solar Region AR2673

Have been out observing & trying to get some images of AR2673 just now. There is still a lot of activity around this sunspot , while I was observing through the Stage 1 PST , a small flare lifted up from the spot and slowly subsided again, over an 15 min. period. The looped prominence above the limb is spectacular as well, managed to get some crude images but I look forward to seeing what the more experienced imagers on the forum manage to capture.
Never got to see any auroral activity over the past few days either, there was a chance that they may have been visible from a little further south but the near full moon and the strong westerly winds detered from venturing out. I know they were visible in Tassie but from Wilsons Prom or Mornington Pen. Would love to hear some reports.

Clear Skies All
