Unusual sunspot activity has bombarded the SOHO spacecraft, causing them to go into "safe mode"
A large sunspot has been the site of several major eruptions in recent days, including one Thursday that was the largest of the series. Charged
particles from the events have been hammering orbital spacecraft.
The storms caused minor glitches on the sun-watching SOHO spacecraft and forced scientists to put two of its instruments into "safe mode," not
unlike an electronic nap.
Sunspot eruptions seem to been happening more frequently and with more intense strength, I know it has effects on sunsets and and atmospheric
conditions, but do they have the power to effect the weather on earth.
