For the past two weeks, the sun has been seething with activity, as in this image captured on July 7th.
Today, not a sunspot to be seen.
Gorgeous sunspot in active region 2109 with an unusual bright center. The umbra (dark area) of the sunspot is quite a bit larger than earth… the little granules on the surface about the size of Texas. What a great week for fun in the sun, y’all.
