    For a giant ball of nuclear fusion counter-balanced by gravity, it is rather cute.

    Nice image John!

    Nice! I'm going to miss AR2665, my very first sunspot since getting the PST. I was hoping for one more look at it yesterday, but clouds did not clear til right around sunset.

    Thanks Mary.

    AR2665 has been a "shining star" in an otherwise pretty dull surface during this solar minimum. Keep that PST ready though. Once 2665 disappears around the corner, I'm expecting some huge proms and perhaps a SME to appear.
