Cycle 24: Another Northern Giant!

AR11476 swung into view on May 5, 22:00UT - helio freeware showed a longitude-length (LL)of 14 degrees - and a spectacular array of surges adorned it.(To be posted when Ive done the graphics!). Here's the group May 7 (local 8th) showing an area of almost 900 units. There is a hint of emerging Delta magnetic mixture in the huge preceding spot. (See above post)
       The small red dots were twice as bright as the chromosphere and are presumed to be Ellerman Bombs.
