Sunspot Alert

Space Weather News for July 4, 2009

The sun is putting on its own 4th of July fireworks show. A new sunspot is rapidly emerging in the sun's southern hemisphere and it is crackling with B-class solar flares.  The magnetic polarity of sunspot 1024 identifies it as a member of new Solar Cycle 24.  It appears to be the best offering yet of the young solar cycle.  Check for images and updates.
