A Big Sunspot Emerges

Space Weather News for Oct. 17, 2014

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. Visit for photos and updates.
