New Substantial Cycle 25 Sunspot

Today 2020 06 03 Wednesday, a penumbral sunspot rounded the SE limb at high latitude. We can surmise this will be AR2765 once officially numbered. This is the first substantial penumbral sunspot of Cycle 25 and hopefully it will herald an increase in solar activity and a rise out of minimum.  Update: officially numbered AR2765 located S24/115
