Their’s a lot of black spots on the sun today…


A large sunspot has appeared on the suns eastern limb today. I suspected their would be a rise in activity,after seeing a large fluctuation in the dynamic pressure a couple days ago. http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/SWN/ ,and a geomagnetic storm warning was issued ,but has since been cancelled as of 19:44 UTC.
We had some clear skies today and made it out to the observatory for some imaging.
The first image shows a close up of the large sunspot as it made it’s way around the eastern limb.
