 After many weeks of a totally blank solar disk, the Sun reawakens and produced several very nice active regions!

Lets start with the full disk shot. While the large group in the center resembles a huge bar magnet, the region on the right limb (going off the disk) is currently flaring. On the left is a minor group that is still developing.

Increasing the exposure and gamma, we see now the proms along the limb. The overexposed disk of the sun has been masked out as to not detract from the faint limb features:

Zooming in with the 3x Klee Barlow, we can see the massive group in the center has huge magnetic field lines joining both spots.

The flaring pair of spots on the following limb has spectacular 3D detail.

Finally, the small group coming onto the disk has its interests as well.

Here are some of the proms along the limb with the close up Barlow.
