Sun Spot Much Larger Than Earth
I just love this type of event. The better we can view such events means the more questions we have. The photo posted here is stunning.
The sun’s headlong plunge into solar minimum has been interrupted by the surprise emergence of a big sunspot. Wide enough to swallow Earth with room to spare, AR2529 doubled in size over the weekend. The behemoth is now being photographed by amateur astronomers around the world and closely monitored by NASA spacecraft.
