Some interest today, after dodging the cloud cover!

A nice set of prominences, and two small sunspots.

There is the relic of AR2750, and the newer AR2751.

AR2750 seems by its magnetic polarity to be a member of new Solar Cycle 25, whereas AR2751 has a magnetic polarity that identifies it as a member of old Solar Cycle 24.

When contemplating these “small” prominences, it is quite sobering to retain a sense of scale. Here is an image with some sizes on it and our own Earth to scale – – – !
