A Big Sunspot Emerges
Source - Space Weather News for Oct. 17, 2014: http://spaceweather.com
A large and active sunspot is emerging over the sun's southeastern limb. Only two to three days ago, this active region unleashed multiple flares and hurled a massive CME over the edge of the sun. If these eruptions continue apace, solar activity could sharply increase in the days ahead as the sunspot turns to face Earth.
