is now well on the solar disc, but there is also a small group more centrally placed. Observed today at 1155 UT by projection with 60mm aperture at f15. Regards Bob

Yes indeed, I visually observed the main Sunspot group, 0utdoors (a bit unusual for me) this morning using 10x50 & 20x60 binoculars (each binocular having one objective lens safely filtered, the other objective fully blocked off). The main Sunspot group was nice to see using both bins. Then I rushed off to get a needle stuck in my arm about 11:10UT. I thought them Ellerman Bombs were fireworks fired off last night.
Best wishes from Cliff
