Solar Update - Sunspot 1112 is starting to lose size, but it continues to produce B and C-Class flares. There will continue to be a chance for C-Class activity.

The main feature around 1112 continues to be the huge Solar Filament that now stretches approx. 555,000 km across which is equivalent to around 39 planet earths across. A nice image captured by Jan Timmermans is shown below.

Sunspot 1116 has disappeared, however a returning region is rotating into view on the northeastern limb and is sprouting new sunspots. This area could be numbered 1117 on Tuesday.
