As the first noticeable sunspots in over a month I couldn't resist, not even on Christmas day! Merry Christmas:)

Yes indeed it was good to see some sunspots yesterday - the two groups are from the new cycle. The southern group may even be visible for a few days.

Hi Peter, I was a bit surprised that both groups were from cycle 25 but I'm not complaining, it was just great to see sunspots and have clear skies long enough to get some images.
