Sunspot 1339 Bubbles with Flares

Sunspot Group 1339 (that's the rally big group to the left of Centre). Image credit SOHO/NASA.

Sunspot Group 1339 has been firing off M class flares nearly continuously. My email in-box is groaning under their weight. The orientation of the sunspot group is not quite good enough for there to be a good chance of auroras, but the possibility is there, so keep an eye out over the next few days.

Also, if it keeps up firing off M class flares the chances of seeing aurora are higher.

This sunspot group is big enough to seen with safe solar projection techniques.
