Sunspot AR1271 will be facing the Earth in a few days ..

Very likely we will see a strong solar flares from this sunspot ..




EMERGING SUNSPOT: A big new sunspot is emerging over the sun's northeastern limb. AR1271 has at least four dark cores and it is crackling with small flares. The sunspot's entrance was captured in this 24-hour movie from the Solar Dynamics Observatory:



NOAA forecasters estimate a 60% chance of M-class solar flares during the next 24 hours. Because of its location near the sun's limb, AR1271 does not yet pose a threat for Earth-directed eruptions. This could change in the days ahead, however, as the sunspot turns to face our planet. Readers with solar telescopes are encouraged to monitor developments.

Also, I just thought I would let you know. The Mayan Elders are predicting massive solar flares in the last 10 days of August. I dont really think anything will happen. But it is interesting to hear a new huge sunspot appearing. Wow, busy little sun we have had lattly, Aye.

That is interesting to know. A certain visitor to our little corner of the Universe is in the process of making her slingshot around the Sun around that time too. 9/11 represents the point where it's direct opposite us, behind the sun. Of course, we can always hope a big black hole will open up on the far side about that time and swallow her whole.
Naturally though, the Sun will choose this time, of all times, to start spitting at us. What else could we get...let's see...I'm sure mother nature will think of something even if I can't.

Crazy times aye. We have had 3 days of snow here. Unheard of. 2011 has broken all records. And its only just warming up. So to speak.

Good, this area was a joy to look at yesterday when the clouds cleared.
Hoping for some clearer skies and increased activity.

It looks like a newly emerging sunspot.
So there is every possibilty that it will turn into one soon.

Thanks for the heads up.

I'm predicting this will blow just before it becomes Earth-facing.

Why?
Comets don't cause changes to the sun.

Venus direction is last dangerous end very active sunspot 1261 so I think is from that sunspot ..

Comet Elenin is not on that side, he is left from Sun ..






We have alignments of Earth, Mercury, Sun end Venus this days ..

I expect more EQ end volcanic activity ..

Yes, and isn't the new sun spot on the left hand side from our viewpoint?

Agreed, this may be the first to be recorded to interact with the sun.

There is another one behind it about 4 or 5 days that looks like it is 3 times as big. I think these have been shooting off a lot of CMEs and flares the last 10 or 15 days. I've seen a lot of activity in the back and west limb of the sun.

Does the recent sun stop activity and CMEs mean the sun is waking up after its slumber...?

No, it is still relatively inactive.

Sunspot graph. (sorry it wouldn't let me embed)

On the left of the graph is the last solar maximum, as you can see the sun was far more active than it is now.
