[BAA-ebulletin 01031] First Sunspot of Cycle 25
(c) 2018 British Astronomical Association    http://www.britastro.org/

The first sunspot of the new solar cycle 25 has been confirmed as AR2744 S27/209 type Bxo
The sunspot emerged in the south east quadrant on the 6th and strengthened on the 7th but has already dissolved on the disk by this morning (July 8th).
AR2744 may not be significant as sunspots go but we can officially welcome the start of the new solar cycle.
