Hi.

Beautiful sunny morning today. Wow, what a nice activity around AR9144. Lot of bright white lines moving quickly. My sketch doesn't do justice to what I observed but give an idea.

Andre.

hi André,

great sketch !
I saw yesterday the sun too.
The group with the big spot looked nice in my PST.
With my eclipse sunglass I saw the spot with free eyes.

Bye
Christian

Nice, Andre. That AR sure looks busy!

@Christian--I was wondering if the AR could be seen with the unaided eye. The monster returns!

Andre,
Very Nice sketch with lots of detail. I was able to get a quick view of AR1944 and it is very amazing. So much detail with just my white light filter. Looks like we are in a very active time.
