A sunspot is emerging near the sun's eastern limb. The spot's low latitude and magnetic polarity identify it as a fossil from old Solar Cycle 23. This breaks a string of 23 consecutive spotless days beginning on Jan. 20th. Readers, if you have a solar telescope, take a look. From the 12th
and this from the 11th feb
The source of the explosion appears to be a collapsing (or erupting) magnetic filament. The filament was present before the flare, absent afterward. Higher-cadence imagery from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) may confirm or refute this idea; however, those images have not yet been beamed back to Earth. Stay tuned for updates.

There was a movie about a meteor heading to earth with a black president.
There was a comment from biden that something big would happen on the 20/21 jan.
Mysterious debris said to look like a meteor or fireball in the sky has been captured on film over Austin, Texas.
A television station was filming a marathon at the time.
The footage, also shown in slow motion, coincides with numerous sightings of falling debris in the area.
The American Strategic Command has said there is no connection with the debris from a recent collision of satellites.
Footage shows what appears to be a meteor streaking across the night sky in southern Sweden on Saturday.
Emergency services were bombarded with calls from mystified observers who witnessed the huge ball of light travelling across the sky.
"Filaments are formed in magnetic loops that hold relatively cool, dense gas suspended above the surface of the Sun," explains David Hathaway, a solar physicist at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center. "When you look down on top of them they appear dark because the gas inside is cool compared to the hot photosphere below. But when we see a filament in profile against the dark sky it looks like a giant glowing loop -- these are called prominences and they can be spectacular."
