17th May 8.30am: Region 2822 is now closing onto the Sun's Western Limb. Though distinct, there appears to me to be only one spot, although it is rather blurry. There were hints of white areas nearby, but they were very vague.

Enjoying the daily reports Tropo.
And a new spot coming around the NE limb, will have to get back into solar imaging soon. Enjoying everyones' postings of the recent activity even if not posting comments, been very busy moving digs and sussing out the new locale to set up in daylight.

Thanks Jeff and I see the new spot that U mentioned!

19th May 9.20am: A new, medium sized spot has appeared in the East and named as Region 2824.

I can no longer see Region 2822 in the West, but I was hampered by cloud. The best that I can say is that if it is there, it has faded significantly.

20th May 8:40am: Just the one medium sized spot in Region 2824. The spot is easier to see today.

I'm impressed that you even saw sun today Bob...

My first white light observation of the Sun for a very long time.

The central area of 2824 appeared irregular in shape. It looked like a jellyfish with short trailing tentacles. Intricate faculae lacework surrounded the “jellyfish” and arranged around this were four groupings of tiny dark spots. On close inspection one of these small spots comprised of four tiny in-line specs and another resolved as two distinct tiny spots.

Midday today with 140mm refractor stopped down to 125mm with a Baader solar film filter.

25th May 8.25am: Region 2824 has moved well away from the Suns eastern limb. The very large Spot seems to have a line of very tiny spots on each side of it.

28th May, 8.30am. Lots of spots near the North West limb. Region 2824 has moved close to the western limb since my last observation (its been wet here) and is being accompanied by a new region, 2826.

29th May, 8.25am: Just the 2 spot left near the Western Limb. They are surrounded by a large number of white areas. I think this is Region 2824, but am not sure.

31st May. 7.40am. A new group of Spots has appeared. I large, 1 medium and one rather diffuse spot that looks to be more than just a tiny spot. It has been named 2825 and is well in from the Eastern Limb.

1st June, 8.30am: Trialing of to the East from the two main spots is a line of numerous small spots.

Looks like I have the name wrong yesterday, this is Region 2827, not 2825.

2nd June, 8.10am: One large spot near the center of the disc. It seems like it has almost absorbed the previously nearby, medium sized spot.

There were hints of detail nearby, which I guess is a number of very tiny spots.

3rd June, 7.50am. A new, small spot has appeared in the South, in from the Eastern Limb. It is currently unnamed.

Region 2827 now is in the Western Hemisphere and has one very large spot, with a number of tiny spots that trial off to the East.

4th June: 8.30am. Yesterday's new spot has become Region 2829 and has become a pair of spots, close together.

Region 2827 is largely unchanged, except for moving a little further west.

Apparently, there is a Region 2828 somewhere, but I see no indication of it in white light.

5th June 8.05am: The pair of spots in region 2829 is now accompanied by a number of tiny spots to the East and North East.

Region 2827 is one large spot with a medium sized spot nearby. The other tiny spots that trialed off to the East have disappeared from my view.

6th June, 8.45am.

Region 2827 is losing definition as it moves close to the Sun's Western Limb. I can only see the one large spot.

Region 2829 is much the same as yesterday, except the fine spots seem to be just a regional darkling rather than individual spots being visible. I have my suspicions about the correctness of this observation, so would not swear to it.

8th June, 8.30am. Region 2829 has bloomed into a very interesting array of 2 medium spots and 4 or more small spots on the Western Side (opposite to previously.)

Region 2827 is just the one medium spot that is closing in on the Sun's Western Limb.
