AR2781 Reaches Naked Eye Visibility

AR2781 is now really coming into full view as it heads towards the centre line of the solar disc. It is now visible to the protected naked eye (only use a safe solar filter viewer if you look at the Sun), is sunspot type Eki and is still solar flare active.

Keith Moseley captured this fine image yesterday (note the other sunspot visible is AR2780 which is the tiny single spot/pore positioned lower right of centre in the image below):
