A magnificent filament eruption occurred on Friday 31st around 19:40 (see picture below; movies of the whole eruption can be found here). The erupting filament can be seen traveling in the South-East direction. At the time of this image, the erupting filament is extending out of the SDO/AIA field of view.
This morning, on 23rd of July, at 02:15, a solar eruption could be witnessed, expanding from the West limb. This eruption likely originated from AR11520 which disappeared around the west limb a few days ago.
NOAA 1515 appeared at the southeastern solar limb on June 27th. With a maximum sunspot area of only about 5 times the total surface of the Earth, it certainly did not become the biggest sunspot group so far this solar cycle. Nonetheless, the group was quite complex and showed interesting dynamics. For example, the images underneath taken by SDO/HMI ( http://sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov/ ) on 1 and 2 July show the splitting of the main spot in less than 24 hours! Cytokinesis of solar proportions!
On Monday, May 21, the shadow of the Moon swept over the Earth, treating observers in North America and East Asia to an annular eclipse. Though it was not visible in Belgium, a pair of Belgian instruments on the PROBA2 had a spectacular view of the eclipse from orbit.
