Rotating into view is a double barrel sunspot of enormous size! Though only producing m class flares at the moment, they suspect it will change! Killshot anyone??
I have a funny feeling this might be one to watch!

Massive sunspot group 1944 continues to rotate into view off the east limb and is capable of producing at least moderate M-Class solar flares. The active region is not yet in a great position for Earth directed eruptions, however this will change over the next several days. Stay tuned! Updated image below by SDO/HMI.

Now I'm wishing I would have brought my telescope along from Wisconsin in November.
It's fun to focus the eyepiece on a sheet of paper and check out the sun-spots, I used to do that every morning when I had a house and a life once, past life....
The salt air here would have eaten the mirror up in short order, that's the biggest reason I didn't bring it....
Anyways, hope this spot doesn't cause too much problems for anybody, I couldn't stand not having internet access for very long....right....

That sunspot does look a little mean. Maybe it just looks mean but is as quiet as a mouse.
I guess mice aren't really all that quiet, I am an example of that.

I will attempt this weekend to take some photos of it, if the skies are clear. Looks great!

Looks like a good site - great find. Hoping someone starts tracking our magnetosphere too (miss NICT).

The problem here is that we have only been able to observe the sun in this way for such a short period of time so we do not have much data or way to gauge these things. It may look big, but is really that out of the ordinary? How would we know?

I should have worded better. I have visited this site for the past year and a half. Compared to the ones we/I normally see, this looked to me, to be just a bit out of the normal size of the sun spots. Time will tell i guess. Thanks for the thought!

Aye, it does look bigger than most (especially recently). Still, time will tell, sunspots can disappear as fast as they appear and we can only wait and see. The sun seems to finally be arising from it's slumber!

I don't know much about "killshot". I can only assume it's a doom-porn scenario?
