AR11026 has now rotated clearly into view and there's lots going on in the region. The main sunspot, visible in white light, is surrounded by fibrils and filaments in h-alpha. The region looks quite 3D in this light. Then there's the new active region, an emerging flux region with loops of dark plasma emerging from a hot bath of plage below. Look in the light of Calcium-K and here you'll find more spots. The Sun might finally be waking up!
