On Saturday the 30th a new solar cycle 24 sunspot group emerged in NE 
quadrant of the Sun near N27E35 and was numbered 11043 by NOAA/SWPC. It 
contains a beta magnetic signature capable of producing B class and isolated 
C class solar flares.

On Saturday the 30th the solar flux index values were 77.0 75.0 74.2 and the 
sunspot number 25. We have had visible sunspots for 10 days in a row, 23 of 
the last 24 days and 34 of the last 36 days. I think that we can safely say 
that solar cycle 24 is well underway and steadily picking up it's pace.

Sunspot group #11041 is now a spotless plage near S27W58 and will soon cross 
the SW limb of the Sun.
