And more of the same or actually less. Very little heard here in the UK by me.

A92GR (Bahrain) knocked W1AW of top spot on Friday as did N5XZ (USA) on Sunday.

From 18 June to 18 September 2014 King Carlos of Spain passes the crown to his son, who will ascend to the throne as Felipe VI. For this, during the mentioned dates the telecommunication office gives to all EA hams permission to use the following callsigns:

EB : AN
EC : AO
And adding the number 0 to the district number.

Sun: 4 sunspot clusters with just one possibly giving off flares.
The European Space Agency's Rosetta probe has reached 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and is manoeuvring to go into orbit around the comet's core. This is an historic event. After Rosetta goes into orbit, it will follow the comet around the sun, observing its activity from point-blank range for more than a year.

Moreover, in November, Rosetta will drop a lander onto the comet's strange surface. Today's events are being streamed live by the ESA.
 
The 2014 Perseid meteor shower will peak between August 10 and August 13. A waning Gibbous Moon (the Moon's phase after a full moon) may make it harder for observers to see the shower. Despite this, astronomers suggest that observers try their luck to catch some Perseids before dawn on August 11, 12 and 13.
