The Sun 12-5-08 – New AR flares 10 times in 8 hours!

A new active region is coming around the east limb and announced itself by flaring 10 times in eight hours producing a number of visible Class A flare proms on the limb. I had pretty poor seeing for photography, but OK for visual. Using the GOES X-Ray flux graphs we could see when the flare proms were developing then race outside to view and photograph them. I caught three of the flares and some of the other smaller proms on the north limb in the images below…….
