Small sunspecks emerging on both solar hemispheres

From Watts Up with That?, September 29, 2008

In comments, Jonn-X wondered:

Dead pixels or new sunspecks (pore-ettes) ?

At first I was pretty sure I was looking at nothing, then I saw the official NOAA bulletin


and the usual phrase, “The visible disk was spotless,” was omitted – typical practice when there’s something there, but too small to be “officially noticed.”

Anybody else see anything?

I do. I know where the dead pixels are, and have labeled them below in the SOHO MDI image. Note that there are two very small sunspecks, possibly soon to be sunspots, emerging on both sides of the equator.
