But looks can be deceiving!

For the record, solar activity is quite low right now. However, that does not mean the Sun can't look pretty impressive. I saw these images and thought I would share. With a lower than average Solar Maximum, it has been a while since the Sun was looking so cool.

Currently, only a 25% chance of a M-class flare and 5% for a X-class.

Wait, so despite all of those sun spots, we aren't at risk?
That's the most i've seen on the Sun

Nope, totally safe right now. Just an awesome display. Almost all of those spots are totally stable.

Isn't it odd that the top and bottom of SOL are calm and peaceful.
Coronal Loops are all over the place in the center.

Time for a magnetic pole reversal for our sun?
