Sunspot 960 putting on a show

Image Credit, NASA/SOHO.

Since last writing, Sunspot 960 has let off two more serious flares (and a host of minor ones), including a powerful M7.4 flare. You can see the details of that flare here, and here is some of the STEREO imagery of that flare.

It may be likely that Sunspot 960 will be visible with safe solar projection techniques. It is also becoming more likely, given its activity and the complex beta-gamma magnetic field, that Sunspot 960 could generate aurora.
