Some activity on the Sun after a quiet March

Sun has been surprisingly active the last couple of days, after nearly a month of what appeared to be copypasta of a ping pong ball.

The weekend afforded me a couple of hours of prime observation and and imaging.

For the curious (and incredibly bored) the full session was streamed and saved on YouTube.
