|The sun magnified 20 power as seen through a cellphone camera. The sun is bright enough with even the solar filter that a less than steady hand could get this image.|
Sunspot AR2665 is nearly the size of Jupiter, which is 11 times larger than Earth. The sunspot has produced an M-class solar flare and a radio blackout over Australia and Asia. We might see coronal mass ejections from this sunspot, which increases our chances of seeing aurora. Keep your eyes and ears open.
