Huge Sunspot on November 3rd, 2011 [Spawns X Class Solar Flare]

Nov 4, 2011; 8:54 AM ET

As I have recently talked about, the sun is entering its active phase. One of the largest sunspots in years is rotating over the sun’s northeastern limb. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory took this picture of AR1339 during the early hours of Nov. 3rd.

This sunspot will be turning toward Earth in the next 24 hours. We will have to watch very carefully and see if it affects the Earth in any way. This massive sunspot is over 25,000 miles wide and has already spawned a X Class solar flare.

This site will show you images of the sunspot as it turns toward the Earth: spaceweather.com.

My experts will keep you up-to-date on this developing situation. Please feel free to share your opinions!

I am always looking for subjects to write about and encourage you to share any pictures of anything astronomy-related.

    I definitely learned about a majority of this, but however, I still considered it turned out practical. Very good blog!

  2. Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!
