at this time it's magnetic configuration is stable ... will be interesting to see if that changes over the next
week or so as it cross the face of the sun

EDIT: -- I should have noted, that wasn't my image, it's from here ....

OK an updated image ... it's now only around 5 days from rotating off the visible face of the sun
so get those telephoto lenses, solar filters and cameras into action
my image -- Pentax K5 camera, 500mm lens, 1/400 sec, f7.1 and Orion solar filter
