December 22nd, 8.20am.

New Region 2915 has burst forth in the East with a pair of moderate sized spots. Region 2916 is a singular spot, which has just rotated past the Eastern Limb. In contrast, Region 2910 has disappeared beyond the Western Limb.

Regions 2907, 08,09 11 & 12 still feature. The line of 2907,08 & 09 has many spots and is particularly interesting.

The SDO image (at Space Weather) showed two other tiny spots, which had Regional names 2913 & 2914, but I did not see them.

Region 2916 is a little further from the limb today. It has faculae along with 2 spots, one of which is very dark and interesting.

There is a solo spot that is sufficiently distanced from Region 2912 to be named as its own Region. Similarly, there are 4 spots east of Region 2915.

I could see spots in 7 named Regions and expect 2 more Regions to be soon named. That's a new record for my viewing.


UPDATE at 7.15am: I see that the new Regions have now been designated as 2917 & 2918. Furthermore, Regions 2913 & 14 which I could not find yesterday, have now disappeared of the SDO image on Space Weather.

There are still nine named regions with spots.

The view of Region 2916 improves every day as it rotates away from the Eastern edge to give a more face-on view. Alternatively, Regions 2907 & 2908 would be loosing their luster as they move towards the Western Limb, except for faculae now being visible.

The most endangered Region is 2911 with just the one small spot that seems to be fading away.

Christmas, 9.00am.

Region 2916 is putting on a fine show in the East. There are 8 regions with spots today. Region 2911 is gone from my sight.

Regions 2907 & 08 are on the Western Limb and have lost most of their glory. There is faculae in the area, but interestingly, the other photosphere in the general area looks dirty or slightly muddy.

Region 2916 becomes more impressive every day. I counted 6 spots and there is large amount of umbra surrounding the spots.

I saw 11 spots in Region 2918, but they were much smaller than those previously mentioned.

Region 2912 has four small spots.

New Region 2919 on the Eastern Edge has just one small spot.

There was faculae on the Western Limb, which is associated with Region 2908.

Region 2916 still dominates with three large spots, of which two are close 'double' spots. I could also see Region 2919 with just one small spot.

I could not see the tiny spot associated with Region 2918 or anything of the Region 2921. Both Regions are show on the SDO image near the Western Limb.

Well, we have had some rain and lots of cloud associated with a tropical monsoon. Hopefully, we will have better weather next year!

Happy New Year, 8.35am.

New Region 2922 has appeared with one medium and one small spot, in the Sun's south-eastern quarter.

Region 2916 continues to dominate as it approaches the Sun's Western Limb. There are two small spots located to the south of 2916 and I think this will be named as a new Region.

There is much faculae on the North-Eastern Limb, which belong to Region 2918.

Region 2919 still shows, be it with just, the one tiny spot.

The three large spots of Region 2916 are losing their luster as they approach the Sun's Western Limb.

Yesterdays, new, unnamed Region has been designated as 2923, but the two spots have disappeared and only faculae is visible near the Western Limb. Much further North, faculae from 2918 is also visible.

Region 2922 has developed ever so slightly with one tiny spot more than yda, so currently one small and two tiny spots.

The lonely spot in Region 2919 has disappeared.

Region 2916 is almost invisible against the Western Limb except for the presence of faculae.

That's it; all the other Regions have disappeared, although I see that Space Weather still has Region 2922 marked on their SDO image.

New Region 2925 with a medium, a small spot and faculae has appeared close to the Sun's Limb in South-East Quarter. It already looks like it will become an attractive Region to view.

Nearby Region 2924 has developed slightly with a new, small spot.

Region 2924 has developed into a maze of approximately a dozen spots; two of which are medium sized. The others are a mixture of small and tiny spots.

Region 2925 is largely unchanged expect for the faculae being more visible. The Sun's photosphere in the Region also looks to be slightly darkened; a bit like slightly dirty water.

Region 2924 has become an amazing sight with a huge number of tiny & small spots mostly in a semicircular line between two medium spots. I counted 23 spots in total.

Region 2925 is unchanged with one medium and one tiny spot along with some faculae.

Two new Regions are visible today. Both have yet to be named on Space Weather.

One small spot with faculae is just in from the South Eastern Limb.

Another small spot has appeared in the north about half across the Sun.

Region 2924 is still putting on a fine show, although there are not as many spots as yesterday.

Region 2925 is dominated by just one medium spot and is largely unchanged from yesterday.

Region 2924 is approaching the Western Limb, but still has the two largest sunspots. Most of the small spots have disappeared. Faculae can also be seen.

Nearby Region 2925 has just the one medium sized spot.

Region 2928 is near the Sun's center (although in the south). It consists of a pair of medium/small sized spots, which looked like they may break into smaller spots with more magnification. (I used 31x)

Region 2927 is in the South East and has just one medium spot.

Region 2926 is in the North-Western quarter. It has one small spot and three tiny spots. However, all the spots are enclosed by one large area of faculae.

Footnote: Its nice to see the Sun again. The passage of a cyclone just to the north and a monsoonal trough have literally damped things down.

Two new Regions have appeared in the North towards the Center. Region 2930 has three small spots and the other Region is yet to be named, but has a pair of small spots.

Region 2926 is now approaching the Western Limb.

The Space Weather website also shows a Region 2929 in the North, however nothing was visible there to me.

The Southern Belt of Regions (2924, 25, 28 & 27) remain similar to yesterday's report.

New Region 2931 has burst into view with a pair of striking sunspots.

Yesterday, I could not see Region 2929, but it also shows with even a more striking pair of spots.

Staying in the Northern 'Belt., Region 2930 has three small spots and is only slightly more obvious than yesterday.

In the Southern Belt, Region 2924 has partly crossed the Western Limb and has one large spot close to the Limb. Regions 2925 & 27 both have just one medium/large spot each.

Region 2928 is very difficult to view with my 80mm + solar filter and although I had seen the Region previously; I had to 'Spot' hop to find it.

Thanks Riyad!

To see an image, go left and click on "The Sun Now" image, then on the next page, click of the yellow image. These are daily images from the SDO, which are far superior to anything that I can provide.
