Sun Spots and Coronal Holes

There’s been so much going on lately with the sun I’ve been off balance and forgetting to write in. Lots of shifty déjà vu.

Check for great pictures of the filaments, auroras, and sunspots.

Sun Spots Galore says there’s no LARGE coronal holes facing Earth. When there are, we get a constant stream of solar wind and CME activity. It doesn’t mean that the smaller ones are quiet. The amount of auroras suggests that we’ve been getting plenty of activity.

As if the general shiftiness and anxiety wasn’t a tipoff.

Then there’s all these sunspots blazing away. Looks like we’re down to four but they cover the Sun like a necklace.
