"Another big sunspot is hidden on the far side of the sun. Solar rotation will carry it over the sun's eastern limb, and into plain view, as soon as July 17th."

During the recent Transit of Venus on 8th June the Sun was totally clear. Now no more than a week later its riddled with sunspots, with an M-class solar flare on the 13th. Currently there are no less than 4 sunspots/groups on the sun. Most being larger than the planet Venus?
Big sunspots 634 and 635 have "beta-gamma" magnetic fields that harbor energy for M-class solar flares. If there are flares in the days ahead, the explosions would likely be Earth-directed. M-class flares are medium-sized; they generally cause brief radio blackouts that affect Earth's polar regions.
Anybody have any ideas on the matter?
