Seeing conditions were quite favorable this morning and I was able to sketch the sun in both Hydrogen Alpha (HA) and white light. While there are only two numbered active regions on the face of the sun, there were other developing active areas of note. Below left is my HA sketch completed at 1555 UT (8:55 AM MST) and a photograph (center) taken by Thomas Ashcraft, in New Mexico at nearly the same time. The sketch on the right is my white light sketch completed at 1715 UT (10:15 AM).
There also appeared to be some activity developing in the southeast while I was making the sketch. The area is visible in Thomas' image as well, and seemed to brighten throughout the 20 minutes or so I was sketching. Apparently, this region continued to increase in activity and may have produced a small flare at 1719 UT (10:19 MST). Thomas, who is also an active radio astronomer captured a radio burst near that time that may be associated with this small region. He has placed the recording on the web and you can listen to it here on his webpage. Make sure and turn your volume up so that you can hear the burst begin about 18 seconds in. It reminds me a lot of sitting on the beach! I would also recommend that you visit his homepage as it is filled with interesting astronomical science.
