Solar Weather

It appears that ol' Sol is having a bit of a conniption today.

According to SpaceWeather.com, there is a nest of unstable magnetic fields near the Sun's northeastern horizon. The central area of this activity does have a dark core; but has not been officially declared a sunspot just yet. C-class flares are emanating from the area. There is aurora alert for the higher latitudes for tomorrow.

Maybe things are starting to heat up again? Sorry, but that pun WAS intended!
