It’s been a long wait, but finally but Solar Cycle 24 has picked up activity enough to get a lot of Solar photographers out of the closet, blowing the dust off their cameras, and get imaging again. Sunspot 1024 has grown rapidly in the past several days and now is a prominent sunspot group in the Sun’s southern hemisphere. If you have a solar telescope you should be out documenting this group as it is constantly shooting off class B & C flares. Here is a single frame grab off of my video that I shot of the group. Below the image, is a video that I took July 5th.
