The sky this morning was partly clear to my surprise so I didn't waste time to image right away the Sun. AR11575 Sunspot Group is large and nice to view both in white light as well as Ha wavelength. AR11576 Sunspot Group, on the other hand is moderate in size but is inconspicious in appearance. There is also a large, wide hedgerow prominence visible in the SE limb as well as a large arching dark filament beside AR11575 Sunspot Group.

The sky this morning is cloudy and hazy but I could still see the Sun so I tried to force myself to observe the Sun in white light and saw 2 nice sunspot groups AR11560 and AR11570 Sunspot Group emerging out from the SE limb. Despite passing clouds, I tried to still image the groups in white light and managed to still image them . Although the result is not that good but I think it is still ok despite the circumstances :) Better luck again tomorrow.

The sky this morning is partly cloudy and seeing condition is fair. The SW Huge Hedgerow prominence is still visible but is starting to dwindle down a bit compare to yesterday's appearance. AR11562 Sunspot Group as well as AR11564 continues to be active as they started to make their exit to the SW limb. There is also another nice large eruptive prominence in the southern limb which I was able to observe before clouds covered my view again :( Sigh!

The sky this morning is partly cloudy and seeing condition is fair. 2 huge hedgerow prominences are visible in the northern and SW limb. Another beautiful flying ejected prominence can be seen in the NW limb! 5 sunspot groups are visible on the Sun. I was clouded out again as I was planning to image in white light :(

The sky this morning is very cloudy but I was able to see the Sun in Ha through passing clouds. Not much solar activity on the Sun this morning except for an interesting faint ,long , thin dark filament situated between AR11564 and AR11562 area. I was able to image it before clouds totally rolled in and ended my imaging session :(

The sky this morning is partly cloudy and seeing is not good. Ther6 from these two, 2 more large faint eruptive prominences are also visible in the NE and SE limb too. AR11560 Sunspot Group is large but is very silent in its core through Ha wavelength. Another large group, AR11564, is very active in its core as viewed through Ha, Lots of small sunspot groups litter the entire disk of the Sun today with the AR11553 Sunspot Group firing another small flare before exiting the SW limb. Overall, it was a great session for me and I'm looking forward tomorrow to monitor both AR11560 and AR11564 (which I missed imaging because of clouds)again as well as the 2 huge hedgerow prominence.
