Christmas Sunspots From Cycle 25 - 24th December

Christmas Eve has brought not just one sunspot grouping from cycle 25, but two! We know this from their reversed polarity compared to cycle 24 spots.  There have been a number of small single spots and pores earlier this year, but so far this is the most cycle 25 activity we have seen.  Fingers crossed this is setting up 2020 as being a good year for solar astronomy as more features become visible.
