Jumping Jupiters!! There are lots of spots today: 5 mediums, many small.

Today is the first day that I have seen proper sunlight since the 18th.

So,

27th April 10.00am EAST: Many spots in one broad area. They have been split thought into Regions 2818, 2820 & 2821.

28th Apr 8.30am EAST: 4 medium sized spots (although 2 of these spots look to be doubles) plus lots of smaller spots. Still the same Regions as yda, but they have moved further to the west.

30th April 8.40 EAST: Just the one small spot shows near the western limb. I can also see broad white areas nearby.

I am not sure to which Region the Spot belongs.

May 2nd 8.30am EAST: No spots, but I saw an slight unevenness it the brightness of the solar disc over a broad area well inwards from the South-Eastern Limb.

Anybody else still do solar projections or am I the last projectionist?

Bob,
Thanks for the report.
At the moment the sun is being projected on a full cloud covered sky.


I think with the availability of Baader Solar filters and good Herschel wedges projecting the solar disk has lost some of its majic.
I used to use projection back in the '60s, but not recently.

Yes, I have tried all them, but still remain attached to projecting.

Here in the tropics, I need to be careful of mold, so using some of my refractors as solar projectors does kill two birds with the one stone!

Bob,
The new AR region has crept in on the East side (No number yet) No visible spot(s) but obvious faculae in both WL and CaK.
Hopefully it will grow in strength and visibility.

Thanks for that. I looked very careful at the East this morning, but alas, still nothing.
