Last night solen.info reports a new high latitude feature with reversed polarity – an emerging spot.
A bipolar reversed polarities region emerged at a high latitude and was located at N70E03 at midnight. No spots have been observed so far.
Overnight talkshop contributors ‘project722’ and Bill McKintyre reported the spot as definite.

I see a clearly defined but small reversed polarity spot center disk at high latitude. We should start seeing more of these if the polar fields have reversed.

don’t like to barge in here but there is a tiny negative sunspot just under its north pole – – a rare sighting that some people here might like to see (and record as souvenir).

Is this a signal that solar maximum for cycle 24 has been reached? Time will tell.
