Interesting indeed. I wouldn't be surprised if it develops a gamma configuration soon (might even have it, I'm rusty in classifying gamma). I would say that this region is the most complex on the disk at the moment. I really hope it can fire out some nice plasma in the coming days as it rotates into a earth directed position 😎

Seems to still be complexifying; still not very complex, but there's definitely a delta there now. Given the positive spot that's developing past the delta I'd say it would pass as a gamma too for the full BGD designation, but just barely.

there are 2 deltas and a gamma-configuration right now. a nice BGD

Definitely. And looks as if its M class material very soon as well. C classes climbing steadily too.

It developed even more throughout the night, the negative spot grew a lot, a lot more little spots between the two big ones, could be interesting if it continues like that.

All while quite, Hopefully building up for a flare, And that's good because it's facing us soon.

Looks way more interesting than 24 hours ago. Look at all those sunspots forming fast.

Magnetically it looks less exciting to me but I’m no expert. What do you think?

Solar protons rising due to this spot or what?

no. due to the incoming CME 

the M flare did no cme at all so it couldnt send any protons to us

Looks like most of the current complexity is located in the top left of the region now; I think that strictly speaking should be designated as a separate AR, but I guess it's all part of the same structure anyway.

Noaa calls this region Delta but i dont really see deltas

The previous deltas between the two largest spots seem to be gone for now, but as per the above there are some spots that are at least close to being deltas in the top left part of the region. Not sure how often or how recently NOAA updates their classification; it's just once per day, isn't it?
