While I busied myself with other things, I failed to notice an event going on on the surface of the sun, that would have been visible on my own monitoring pages, had I been looking. Hmmm. In the sidebar there is an “Active Monitoring” list. In this list is where I put topics/events for which there are active elements that are current and constantly being updated from their sources. I have one for the sun here.

WUWT managed to catch this item:

Arrows mark the filament, more then a million kilometers in length

So, check in with SOHO frequently – you never know what you might see!
