9th June: 8.20am. Region 2829 has shrunk to just the 2 medium spots, whilst Region 2827 has disappeared (probably behind the Sun's Western Limb).

10th June, 800am. A new region consisting of 2 small spots has appeared in the North, about half way across the Sum's disc. It has not been yet given a region number.

Region 2929 is moving further west and now shows only two, rather diffuse looking spots, however, they are accompanied by quite large white regions (ok, what the proper name for these?), which is surprising since it is still somewhat distant from the Sun's Western Limb.

June 14th, 9.25am: A large new spot has appeared near the Eastern Limb. All other regions have disappeared.

Unfortunately, I had several days of cloudy weather.

17th June, 7.35am. Just the one large, dark spot surrounded by a well-defined penumbra. Region 2833 is near the center of the Sun's Eastern Hemisphere.

18th June, 7.50am: Still just the one large spot. The Spot's Umbra seems to have largely taken over the penumbra that was well defined yesterday and this makes the spot look larger and darker, but also leaves it looking somewhat ill defined.

19th June, 8.00am. Just the one, large blurry looking spot. There has been little change since yesterday.

21st June, 8.40am. The large spot has returned to having a well-defined umbra. I thought I saw a tiny spot nearby, but it was at the edge of my capacity to see it.

Region 2833 is now located about half way across the Sun's Western Hemisphere.

The spot in Region 2833 has now moved close to the Sun's Western Limb. It appears to have shrunk and become ill defined. There is also some faculae nearby. (What I previously called white areas).

Only the single spot was visible and it is getting very close to the Sun's Western Limb. It appears to be losing definition and intensity as it become more side-on to us.


25th June, 4.55pm. The Spot is much more difficult to see than this morning and is now extremely close to the Limb.

26th Jun, 8.40 am. Two new spots have appeared just in from the Eastern Limb.

The Spot from Region 2833 has now disappeared behind the Western Limb.

27th June, 9.35am. Two impressive spots are now in from the Eastern Limb. Hints of other close spots noticed, but hard to see with this edge-on angle.

28th June, 8.35am. The two spots of Region 2835 are now accompanied by several smaller spots further West. Surprisingly, these has been given its own number: 2836.

Thanks Bob.
We were fogged and clouded out until late morning.
Certainly an impressive group.

Lots of spots today. Region 2835 has it two spots that a jointly surrounded by a common umbra. There is a line of small spots out to these spots. It looks both strange and attractive.

Region 2836 is more clearly developed today.

Conditions were difficult today with only momentary glimpses through clouds, but it is the most activity that I have seen in a while, so well worth looking at if readers have an opportunity.

2nd July, 8.30am.

Region 2835 has a huge, dark spot surrounded by a very large, lopsided umbra. There are two small spots nearby with either some tiny spots or an unattached area of only umbra. It all makes for very attractive viewing in white light.

Region 2836 is barely hanging on with just one small spot. Both of these regions are now in the West,

On the Eastern Side, Region 2837 has a few small spots.

3rd July, 8.30am.

Region 2835 is still a large spot surrounded by an impressive amount of umbra. There may be some tiny spots in the umbra, but otherwise no other spots are left in 2835.

Region 2836 still has only the one small spot.

2837 has 3 small spots, two of which are close together.

4th July, 9.15am.

The large spot in 2835 continues to put on a fine show despite approaching the Sun's Western Limb.

2837 has only two spots that I can see today.

5th July, 9.35am.

The large spot in Region 2835 is now losing definition as it approaches the Sun's Western Limb.

Region 2837 has 3 small spots, 2 close together and a couple of tiny spots.

I saw some faculae near the South Eastern Limb, but no spots.

Gosh, a bit disappointing after several very cloudy days.
