Region 2904 is still alive, with one small spot on an otherwise featureless Sun (in white light).

There were no sunspots visible today with direct observation through my Vixen 80mm and solar filter.

There are 3 Regions visible today. New Region 2907 is on the Eastern edge and is one tiny spot, and faculae. The other new Region 2906 is further from the Eastern edge and is just one small spot, or it may have been a double spot. I could not see clearly because of its smallness and the early morning seeing.

Region 2905 is unchanged from yesterday with one small and one tiny spot.

All of this was observed directly (with filter), as they did not show with solar projection.

There has been interesting developments since yesterday.

Region 2907 has an array of small and tiny spots. I counted 8. Nearby, but closer to the Eastern Limb, there are two addition spots and faculae. I suspect that this will be numbered as a separate Region.

Region 2906 has developed a medium/large spot and is accompanied by one small and one tiny spot.

Region 2905 has just the one small spot.

I counted 26 spots this morning, five of which are medium sized. There are many spots trailing of towards the Eastern Limb from Region 2907 and these have been designated as Regions 2908 & 2909.

Region 2906 is still featuring and contained six of those spots; one medium sized with umbra.

Region 2905 still shows with tiny spots on the SDO image, but I could not see it.

It is indeed better today. I counted 35 spots at 2.00 pm.
Vixen NA140SS stopped down to 120mm with a DYI Baader solar film filter.

I hope the weather will hold for the next couple of days to watch these spots evolve even more.

There are 6 Regions visible today and with so many spots, that it is sometimes difficult to know where are the Region's boundaries. Its a nice problem to have compared to a week ago, when no spots were visible.

Yesterday's two new Regions have been designated as 2910 & 2911.

I counted 27 spots in five Regions. (2906, 07, 08,09& 11). Region 2910 has disappeared from my sight, although, it is still marked on the Space Weather Site. The spots are mainly small.

A small spot has appeared very close to the Sun's Eastern Limb. There is also faculae in the new Region. It is in the same latitude as the Regions 2906 through to 2909.

Yesterday afternoon's small spot has been named as Region 2912.

Region 2910 has reappeared with one small and one tiny spot.

There are currently 7 Regions with spots visible. There is also a small spot, well east of Region 2909, which I expect to also be named as a new Region. If so, then that makes 8 Regions visible. Even 7 Regions is more than I have seen before.

There are 8 named Regions with spots today.

Yesterday's new spot has been named 2913.

There are lots of spots and Regions 2907, 08 & 09 are particularly attractive.
