Solar Activity Is Moderate

The Sun is currently in Cycle 24 and moving toward minimum which should happen around 2018-2019. We are still in the maximum half of the cycle but the sun seems a bit under-the-weather so to speak....
For those AstroPhotographers that like imaging the sun, a great link to identify the sunspots is:

Moderate size sunspots 2415 & 2418 are approaching midway through the face of the sun at this time while 2414 is soon departing. I took these two days ago so it has rotated a bit from these images.

White-light solar imaging is easy and fun so start imaging....
