    This has been the most active SS region so far this cycle, producing at least 5 X class flares and many M class ones. The region has been reported as the largest in size in the last 20 years.
    The region is now a day or 2 away from disappearing around the limb of the sun.
    Will it still be kicking when it reappears in a couple of weeks ?

    cheers

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    well 2 weeks later and old AR2192 reappeared as new region AR2209
    unfortunately it was only a pale shade of its former appearance and has only produced a few M class flares
