    If you have a gap in the clouds during the next few days, have look at the Sun (properly filtered telescope of course, or project the solar image onto white card). There is a large sunspot group on the disk AR1654 which is pretty impressive in white light. Peter Paice’s image in Calcium K-line shows the group in the NE quadrant in dramatic style. The group is firing off flares and could release a powerful X-ray flare in the next few days so observations are requested by the Solar Section.
