So, I've not seen the sun since May 27th. It's been storming daily and clouded over forever it feels like. Finally got a morning with no clouds for a little while. Now it's cloudy, but at least this morning gave me a window. And of course, it's a near void disc today. Barely any surface features other than the remnants of AR2661, a single large filament and a little plage near the sunspot. There's only a single fairly good sized prominence group, and its small compared to what was going on a few days ago. Very quiet disc. Figures! The clouds kept me away from all those big groups over the past 4 weeks that I've missed in the storms. Alas. But the beauty of high resolution is that there's always something some where to look at that is interesting!
