There has been something brewing just off the NE limb for 2 days now...The plage is obvious and the SOHO magnetogram is now showing activity in that area(and that it would of cycle 24) as well as some BASS images... I'm not sure what the visual effect is called when you're trying to view near the edge of the disk, since you're not looking down on it, you can't define the area...We may have to wait until it rolls around or if someone with a more powerful scope can zoom in that area, we can get a look at things to come!...
