IT'S BACK!!!!!!!!!!!! : LUSENET : Grassroots Information Coordination Center (GICC) : One Thread

Giant sunspot 9393 -- the source of the biggest solar flare ever recorded and several geomagnetic storms earlier this month-- disappeared two weeks ago when it rotated around the Sun's western limb. Now, after two weeks crossing the back side of our star, 9393 is back. At its peak on March 28th the active region covered an area equal to fourteen planet Earths. How big is it now? We'll find out as it rotates into direct view during the days ahead.

I really get a kick out of sun spot postings. Thanks for your time.
