Solar Activity Update for Jan. 6th 2012

after all this action yesterday solar activity is nearly quiet. First some news  to the latest events yesterday.

We  remember the  large filament eruption to the north of region 1392 was recorded as a long duration C2.1 Class event peaking at 12:38 UTC.

So the main core of the associated CME will not reach Earth but STEREO imagery and also ISWA CYGNET STREAMER shows us  that the outer edge of the CME could hit us:

The ISWA CME Arrival Time Prediction shows up an alert:

More on this later

The new Region 1393 (circled) next to 1392 gets numbered. It emerged in the northeast quadrant on January 4 and got an SWPC number the next day

Region 1388 and 89 was quiet and stable. Region 1391 was quiet too. Region 1390 lost some trailing spots but the leading penumbra increased.
1392 developed again as new flux emerged (we remember the flare yesterday).

Solar activity is near to low so far. We had one C Flare

Flare of class C1.4138906:04:0006:08:0006:11:00

NOBODY in the amateur astro world does Sun in H-Alpha better than this:

What a close up from Region 1391!
Rogerio Marcon, the world's best solar amateur imager regularly posts images which just beggar belief ...Look his stuff up on

Region 1989 and 88:

We seen a CME on Stereo Images

This CME is not earth facing and will have not any effects its farside
However we find the source of it.
We noticed a large eruption on Stereo Behind Euvi 195 :
