This morning Gong shows a small bright feature in the northwest quadrant.  Anyone observing this?

Caught a quick shot this morning in really bad seeing so just went for the full disk:  Noticed that bright spot immediately when I was viewing before setting up the camera.

 Easy with good detail in my  SM90  III with one etalon.  Seeing was  quite good early on and I used 230X but became somewhat turbulent later and I dropped to 115X. David

Hi Warren, Nice image of that Chuck Berry flareup. I wonder if it's resonating and if so, what frequency? lol.gif

Gorgeous disc Warren. I think AstroDan was talking about Chuck Barris.
