I don't think we've seen anything of this magnitude for a good number of years!

It's almost the size of Jupiter, as far as I can tell.

Most likely to be numbered 1654.




For me, what makes this one so impressive is the fact that it appears to be one perfectly round, gaping maw. I've seen some pretty large groups before, but this is.. wow.

No word on the magnetic field yet.

What if that big bastard blasts us to death when it turns around to us?

Nor have I!

When I first saw it, I thought it was an artifact. There was no way it could be a single spot (hole?)!

But no, it is. Pretty stunning.

Maybe my memory is giving out because of all these years of quiet we've had! lol

I know I've seen very large groups before, but a single spot like that? Don't recall one. It will be interesting to see if it's at full maturity or still growing.

Here is real size of Jupiter.

Also size of the Earth.



But this sunspot is respectful.

??? Did you look at the picture? So Jupiter is casting it's shadow on the sun? That's what you are saying if you did look at the picture...

sure looks like a sunspot, one can clearly see the entire hole surrounded in in orange.

That hole has been there for awhile now, it's not Jupiter so don't believe him or phage.
No one remembers about anyone talking about a big huge hole in the Sun that NASA kept hiding? Gosh, that was like months back, now I got to find it.

I suspect you're thinking of a coronal hole.

Coronal hole =|= sunspot.

NASA has no way of hiding a sunspot from you.

One of the members posted a youtube video months back, it's was yellow and grey with the same hole length. Agh, trying to find it on youtube video but with no luck and I have to go bed. Bah, But I know I have seen that before.

Now if only we had designed a Probe to shoot right in to that little bugger.

Might be just be just me, but mankind needs to get our act together so we can explore our solar system with out the bulldust of the things that plague earth. I just want to get hands on out there. Do it for my self. start exploring.

I don't know about anyone one else but i am itching to explore.

There must be something brighter than light itself, if the sun has a shadow on it.

And it must be pretty near too, run for the hills

That is Jupiter, Phage?? Seriously? I admit I am rather uneducated about these things. Is the way it looks flattened out an optical illusion ?

How could that possible be Jupiter?

The object in that picture looks like a sunspot, plain and simple (although a big sunspot), and Phage would agree -- so you can't be Phage.

No -- the object in the OP's picture looks like a (large) sunspot, not Jupiter. And, for the record, Phage didn't say it was Jupiter.

I think what you are talking about was that spherical-looking gaseous thing in the corona of the Sun. That was a coronal prominence cavity, which are not that uncommon. Or maybe you are talking about coronal holes (there was a big one that was roughly the shape of a slice of pizza). By the way, NASA wasn't HIDING those things -- they are the ones who took a picture of them and showed them to us. If NASA wanted to hide those, they just wouldn't bother posting pictures of it.

Here is information on what a coronal prominence cavity is:

And information on coronal holes:
