AR2670--A Shadow of its Former Self 8/8/17

AR2670 continues to decay as it moves across the solar disk. It now has a stable magnetic field, which means it is unlikely to produce any flares. The plages around the spot are also fading as the whole area settles down. I also took and H-Alpha image, but it shows even less detail of this image and I have not posted it. In a few days, I suspect we will be looking at a featureless disk again as the sun moves into a deep minimum.
