We now officially have solar cycle 24 sunspot group #11040 located near 
28E59, with a beta magnetic signature capable of producing very small B 
lass solar flares and an isolated small C class solar flare.
The solar flux index values are 79.2 78.1 76.3 and the sunspot number 15.

Solar cycle 24 sunspot group #11039 has set around the western limb of the 
un. Old solar cycle 24 sunspot group #11038 has risen around the eastern 
imb of the Sun. At the moment it appears to contain a spot or two but is 
ifficult to tell for sure at the moment. If so and it survives then 
OAA/SWPC will re-number it #11040.
The solar flux index values are 69.2 76.8 75.1 and the sunspot number 13.
Updated 2300 UTC
NOAA/SWPC says that sunspot group #11038 is a spotless plage but I see one 
one spot and I suspect that it will produce new spots in days to come. SIDC 
as assigned it Catania #35.
The solar flux index values are 77.8 77.3 76.1 and the sunspot number 00, 
nding an 11 day period with visible sunspots.
