Stand by your (Solar) scopes!

Big spot appearing (2674): “A big new sunspot is rotating into view over the sun’s eastern limb. AR2674 has two dark cores larger than Earth and sprawls more than 150,000 km from end to end. The active region is crackling with minor C-class solar flares. It is too soon to say if bigger explosions are in the offing. Amateur astronomers with safe solar telescopes are encouraged to monitor developments.”
