Like a breath of fresh plasma, there's an emerging sunspot group on the Sun. This ends a very low period of activity on the solar surface and as it's a cycle 24 spot group is very exciting indeed. Seeing conditions weren't brilliant this morning but, to be honest, I don't care because there's a sunspot group to look at!!
