Sunspots are back!

After a very quiet season, we have some new sunspots.
Thanks Gadi for pointing this out.

Just looking at the sun with a filter will not show them as they are usually too small, but if you set up a projection with a small telescope or binoculars you can. Or if you want to be really lazy, or just view them at night, you can see almost live pictures at Space Weather

See if you can find them during the partial eclipse on Friday.
