Is our sun in its last days? The calm before the storm type thing. It is a sobering thought that our source of life could be on her way out.
If she does die like other stars, wouldn't that create a blast that would literally vaporize the galaxy, or most of it? Not real sure what EXACTLY happens when stars end their cycle...and not in the mood right now to research...

Well, it looks like the three new sunspots continue to grow in intensity and this maybe just the beginning according to wired:

Looks like things could get interesting stay tune!
New solar cycles always begin with a high-latitude, reversed polarity sunspot," explains Hathaway. "Reversed polarity" means a sunspot with opposite magnetic polarity compared to sunspots from the previous solar cycle. "High-latitude" refers to the sun's grid of latitude and longitude. Old cycle spots congregate near the sun's equator. New cycle spots appear higher, around 25 or 30 degrees latitude.
