March 29th: 8.35am EAST.

The medium sized spot (Region 2812) has moved to just inside the western hemisphere of the solar disc. Otherwise it looks much the same as yda.

The NASA website indicates a small/tiny spot nearby, but I did not see it.

30th March: 8.30am EAST.

I saw nothing today, but conditions were hazy, so small spots may have gone unnoticed.

I dusted off and checked my white light filters today. They have not seen daylight for some years.

A quick check of the Sun. Region 2812 appeared as two small and faint dots adjacent to each other. They were easily missed if not accurately focused.

Good to hear Steve. Looks like we have the North and the South of the country covered.

There were no features visible today with solar projection.

Yesterday, the Sun stayed behind the clouds.

13th April 8:40am EAST: Lots of tiny spots near one small spot.

I was inspired to take a photo with an old smartphone (with visual aperture filter) and then enlarge the appropriate part. (It's better to look at the enlargement first.)


(Ha, since doing this, I see the The Sun Now image has been updated and it shows it better. However, before I did this mornings observation, the Sun Now image was an older one showing no spots.)

18th April: 8:30am. A new group (2816) has appeared in the South East. I see, two, small, well-spaced spots with at least one tiny spot accompanying them.

If it continues to rain at the current rate... & it certainly seems likely, we are on track for the wettest April on record...

We've had 567.6mm thus far this April & the record is 634.6mm in 2006 so... not far to go...

Just quietly... I'm over it...
