Todays Sun showing a new, large sunspot that has just appeared round the Solar limb (edge) from the other side (See “full frame size close-up).  You can see the darker central “umbra” and the surrounding “penumbra” – there is also an area nearer the limb that may be a further group of sunspots?  We shall see tomorrow!  This is a new active area and has not been allocated a number yet.
