Good afternoon

The skies were very clear for this morning's imaging run. The disk was very steady and she was sitting in a very transparent sky. After the rain yesterday afternoon. The air is considerably fresher than of late.

Our star still remains active to the H alpha observer. And today is no exception.
Sun spots AR 2376 and AR 2378 are active, and crackling with C-class flares. Fila Prom activity is still good with a large one visible in this image.

With weather this good. I hope to continue monitoring our star as often as possible.

Nice image, Paul. Yes, the sky was pretty decent this morning and I too had some good views in H_alpha.

Thank you Jeremy.

It was nice seeing our only "daylight" star again.
