CR2099 Carrington Rotation Released

Good Evening,
This Rotation showed Sunspot Groups AR11087 to AR11095. AR11092 showed several C class flares and Auroral sightings, deep into the mid US states. Obervers for this period were: Gema Araujo (GAR),Howard Eskildsen(HES), Jerry Fryer (JFR), Monty Leventhal (MLV), Tony Broxton (TBR),Susan Delaney (SDL) Erica Rix (ERI), John Rousom (JRO), R.J.Rienks (RJR). There were 162 images in white light, h-alpha, Ca-K. Also sketches of the sun in white light and H-alpha.

This can be found at : under recent observations CR2099.

You will notice that the nomenclature has been changed to take in the date, observer and how many images were sent in by that observer. All information on the images are on the images. This process still takes several hours, but less labour intensive than past archiving which took between 10-15 hours a rotation.

I hope to have the balance of the Rotations up within the next month. Thank you for your patience.
