Slooh shows new violent sunspot region

Good Day Everyone,

Just finished watching today's free 30 minute SLOOH live solar view.  It was very nice to have on the screen as I worked today but especially so when a very large and violent sunspot group rotated into view.  The astronomers narrating the event were very excited to say the least.

All you solar observers should have quite a remarkable view over the next few days.  Don't forget to share any images!  Cool

Almost forgot, here is a link to the site:

A nebula in the eyepiece is worth two in the Atlas.

Me again,

Just to whet your appetite a bit here is a SOHO image of the sun taken before the sunspot group mentioned above rotated into view.
