The Return of Active Sunspot AR1429

SUNSPOT SET TO RETURN: Sunspot AR1429, the source of many strong flares and geomagnetic storms earlier this month, is about to re-appear following a two-week trip around the backside of the sun.

Check for images and updates as AR1429 rotates into view during the next ~24 hours.
