SOHO observed a fairly active magnetic region as it rotated towards the center of the Sun (May 20 - June 3, 2009). Its magnetic loops twisted and gyrated as it appeared to generate more intensity over time and burst out a number of small flares. Its magnetic orientation and high latitude marked it as belonging to the new Solar Cycle 24. A quick check with the STEREO (Behind) images (http://stereo.gsfc.nas.gov) suggests that another active region may soon be coming into view as well. Perhaps solar activity, in the doldrums for about two years, may be picking up a bit. Stay tuned!
