Solar Cycle 24 sunspot 1013 Feb 2009

Finally a new Cycle 24 sunspot has appeared high in latitude in the northern hemisphere. It has been numbered 1013. Pictures are below.

We will have to see if this thing decides to grow larger. This ends the spotless streak and is the first Cycle 24 spot since Jan 9th.

Update: Sunspot 1013 has already all but disappeared.
