AR11683 & AR11685 2nd March

Despite looking a very turbulent region of the sun, the big spot associated with this active region is already showing a light bridge - a line of bright plasma cutting across the umbra and penumbra. Still, there is alot going on here; some mild flaring, swirling plasma and quite a few spots. If the sun could just pep up a bit in terms of its activity things would be better!

Taken with the 70mm PST mod @ f15, achieved by using a 2.5x powermate and DMK31 camera.
