I just came back from my several minutes duration observing session. I used my new small toy - Lunt LS50THa with 8mm and 6mm eyepieces = 44x and 58x.
The disk is blank with two nice small exceptions - new small AR at the extreme limb of the south-east solar face and a small dark filament at the north-west part of the solar disk.
See here the images taken from GONG site.
I hope this AR is the cycle 25 sign. If so, we may conclude that the cycle 25 started to develop.
Grab you scopes, guys and go outside to look at it.
