New solar cycle 24 Active Region forming on the sun

The first active region of solar cycle 24 was observed on January 4th 2008. This new active region in the north displays the characteristic reversed polarity. The bright region has not coalesced into a sunspot yet and may fade without properly forming, we will have to wait and see! Very little activity was otherwise observed today, there are some small prominences in the north with the larger group of proms lying quite close to the new active region.
