When was the brief sunspot Phage? I missed it! I have been watching most of the time, I don't know a lot about the sun but I find it fascinating and I had noticed the coronal hole at the north of the sun but it has been there so long I figured it was normal, also the fact that the coronal holes are appearing all the time, I didn't know that is not the usual. Thanks.

Here's the sunspot. (sundot?)

Your question about coronal holes made me find out I didn't have it right. As I understood it, the polar holes sort of expand and break up but that's not it. The polar holes don't really expand. It's more like they shrink and smaller holes form at lower latitudes. It does seem like the holes we're seeing are closer to the equator but I might be imagining it.

Near the maximum in the 11-year solar activity cycle, the large polar coronal holes are replaced by a collection of smaller holes scattered over a wide range of solar latitudes.
