Sunspot 956, a sunspot to watch

Image Credit NASA/STEREO

Sunspot 956 (the bright area on the left of the solar image) has been reprted by Spaceweather to have let off a C1 class flare. This was picked up by radio recivers in the US, although no flare alerts came from the Aussie IPS.

Spaceweather also has a nice animation showing a coronal mass ejection blasting out towards the Pleiades (the star cluster in the top left of the animation image).

Keep an eye on Sunspot 956, there could be big thing coming from it.
