The Sun is breaking out in spots. In addition to the one which rotated around from the far side, there is one forming now in the the northern hemisphere.

Here comes some bad weather and political climate.

Read somewhere that sunspots effect humans more than we knew aside from our electronics but we are electronic beings as well.

Space Weather News for Sept. 22, 2009
spaceweather.com...

NEW SUNSPOTS: In a year when the sun has been utterly blank 80% of the time, the sudden emergence of two large sunspots in a single day is a noteworthy event. Today is such a day. NASA satellites and amateur astronomers are monitoring a pair of growing sunspots, both apparently members of long-overdue Solar Cycle 24. The emergence of these active regions is not enough to end the deepest solar minimum in nearly a hundred years, but they do represent a significant uptick in solar activity. Check spaceweather.com... for images and updates.




CHARLIE PERRY SOLAR NEWS
Earth Approaching Sunspot Records, Corey Jones talks to Charlie Perry, a research hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Lawrence
..............
Perry said there is a feeling from some in the scientific community the Earth may be entering into a grand minimum, which is an extended period with low numbers of sunspots that creates cooler temperatures. The year without a summer, which was 1816, was during a grand minimum in 1800 to 1830 when Europe became cooler, Perry said. Another grand minimum was in 1903 to 1913.

I think Phage is forgetting that during years of grand minima SUNSPOTS STILL APPEAR IN THE SUN...


How many times have you, or someone else who agrees with you, posted about some sunspot as if that was proof the Sun went back to normal?...

I think you better hold your party a bit longer instead of jumping at every sunspot as if they were some kind of proof that the Sun's activity is back to normal...

Sorry, I forgot to include the sarcasm tags.
It was meant as sarcasm, as in "wow...two sunspots...big deal".

i dont think anyone is saying the sun is back to normal just yet, but it is good to see some action (even little spurts of action).

nobody knows for sure at all what will happen in the coming months or years leading up to the next "maximum" in 2013.

Thats the exciting thing for me. Anything is possible, regardless of the scientific findings. IMHO of course.

And a couple of nice shiny B flares to go along with them.

New Sunspots are crackling away with a "C" class flare in there.



New-cycle sunspot 1026 is crackling with magnetic activity, and this morning it produced a C-class solar flare




If you thought that flare seemed small, you were right. It was about 100-times too weak too affect Earth. During Solar Maximum, such a minor eruption would probably go unnoticed and certainly unmentioned. But during the deepest solar minimum in almost 100 years, it's a big event. A C-flare! The blast raised no radio blackouts or radiation storms--only the hopes of solar observers for something more flamboyant

The best activity for a good while! Keep it coming Sun, Keep it coming!
