BIG SUNSPOT ALERT
« on: Aug 26, 2018, 10:35:03 »

For most of 2018, the solar disk has been blank without a trace of even the smallest sunspot. This weekend something different is happening. A large sunspot has suddenly emerged, growing rapidly into a sprawling group with two dark cores as wide as Earth. Satellites are monitoring the region to see if it will break the quiet of solar minimum with a significant flare. Visit Spaceweather.com for more information and updates.
