Shameless plug but it's related. I compliled a little bit of info about solar viewing here....

No problem, I thought it'd be of interest to some people at least.

Of course

You presented good information, interesting read.

One day i will get me one of these Coronado scopes. They are pricey but the quality is amazing.
Those binoculars are nice to. Never heard of it before.

This might be worth watching....

"SOLAR ACTIVITY IN THE OFFING: A big sunspot is emerging over the sun's NE limb. Yesterday it unleashed an M1-class solar flare (SDO movie) and hurled a coronal mass ejection into space. Geoeffective solar activity could increase in the days ahead as the sun's rotation turns the sunspot toward Earth."

Thanks,
This can be an interesting sunspot for sure.
It still has a beta configuration according to noaa, but that will change in the coming days.
From the last images i saw, the region contains different big spots and mixing polarities.
I think this region could produce some big M and X class flares.
Keep an eye on that one!

edit: It just produced an M4.3

Update from solen.info

Region 11339 has rotated fully into view revealing what is easily the largest area of any region during cycle 24.
This FKC region spans about 17 degrees longitudinally with nearly continuous penumbral coverage (more than 2000 mills).
There is a significant magnetic delta structure in the central southern part of the region and apparently a few smaller deltas elsewhere in the region. This region has the potential to release very large flares (class X10+).

It's a biggie:

"Measuring some 40,000 km wide and at least twice that in length..."

and

Time to rock and roll!

Hmmmm....I didnt think we would be rocking and rolling just two hours later lol!

Looks like an incoming X class flare.

Also for reference, there is a thread just started on it:

I would expect more large flares soon,
after all there is a potential for an X10+.

Must agree, 1339 looks bad, and its very talkative so far.

Posted this in the other thread but here you go.
Seeing as I can't upload a gif, here is a couple of links that show vids of the flar in H-a.

Im not sure how long the vids stay current for but you can clearly see the bright flash associated with the flare.

Saw something about it here on phsyorg.com about the "benevolent monster".


The sun shot off a flare Thursday afternoon from a region that scientists are calling a "benevolent monster." Scientists at the federal Space Weather Prediction Center say that region is the most active part of the sun since 2005. It has dozens of sunspots, including one that is the size of 17 Earths. Thursday's flare wasn't aimed at Earth. However, this active region is now slowly turning toward Earth. Scientists say that region will be directly facing Earth in about five days.

Nice.Can't wait.

With all the activity I will be keeping
a close eye on the sun as it slowly
turns to face us. A sun spot the size
of 17 earths - that is mind boggling!

So it will face us in 5 days - will not
interfere with the YU55 I hope. Of
course not, what am I thinking

I think you mean the whole region, not just one sunspot

Imagine 17 times big black sunspot, it would look like a giant mole, which you could see with your naked eye(if you use those protected sunglasses


According to noaa site the region contains now 13 spots and has a B-G-D magnetic configuration.

1339 N18E57 104 1400 Ekc 13 25 Beta-Gamma-Delta
www.swpc.noaa.gov...

On solen.info they count 25 spots
www.solen.info...

I also count more than 13, let's say 22

Nothing big, but lots of activity:

SOLAR ACTIVITY: Sunspot AR1339 is crackling with M-class solar flares, unleashing at least five of them in the past 24 hours.

one of the largest sunspots in many years and it is eerily quiet.
COME ON SUN,.. THROW US A GOOD ONE

I was looking at some SOHO images and 1339 when I got to looking a bit closer... What is that coming around the horizon in our direction?







That does look larger to me? Here is the sunspot image with labels...



This really active area looks to me to be between and behind the 3 labeled ones. The dates are all today, so it should match up. I don't know if it means anything, it just looked interesting in magnitude and size in the different wavelengths.
