New Sunspot Emerges and Explodes
Source - Space Weather News for June 1, 2017: http://spaceweather.com
SUNSPOT: On June 1st, a small but surprisingly active sunspot rotated
over the sun's eastern limb. In less than 24 hours, it has unleashed
nearly a dozen C-class solar flares and hurled a pair of CMEs into
space--an impressive display of fireworks. So far, none of the
explosions have targeted Earth, but this could change in the days ahead
as the active region rotates toward our planet.
