First sunspot for 28 days coming into view from Earth. Also, first M-class flare since 2017. Captured in data from Helioviewer.org up to 11 hours ago.


ETA May 31: That was quick.

"RETURN TO QUIET: A new-cycle sunpot that unleashed a flurry of solar flares on May 29th has disintegrated--so quickly that it didn't even have time to be officially numbered. " - spaceweather.com
