Between October 1 and 3 a small short-lived suspot still belonging to the 24th cycle appeared in the S hemisphere. This has been the most relevant sign of solar activity to date, just to break a row of 27th spotless days. However around day 6 two small active regions were visible at the same time, the S one corresponding to the decayed region 12749 and a N region, small, without sunspots, with opposed magnetic polarity, i.e. belonging to the 25th cycle.
Today the most prominent sign of activity is a faint but large flame on the NE limb. The disc remains spotless and almost featureless.
