Possible Cycle 25 Region
Hello again. I have not posted any updates in a little while as the sun has continued to be extremely quiet.

Something of interest to report on today however. A small sunspot forming high in latitude in the southern hemisphere just gathered up enough strength to produce a very small B-Flare. That in itself is now that interesting. The fact that this region is located high enough in latitude and has the correct magnetism to possibly associate with the upcoming Solar Cycle 25 is interesting! We will see whatever else if anything this tiny active region will bring us. Image below by SDO/HMI.
