Sunpot #1476 - Probable CME in next 5 Days

 Here comes another one.  Crackling (radio) already heard from this one.  Rotation speed leaves it pointing at Earth for the next 5 Days.  Let's hope the lid stays on this one.........
SOLAR ACTIVITY INTENSIFIES: Huge sunspot AR1476 is crackling with M-class solar flares and appears to be on the verge of producing something even stronger. The sunspot's 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field harbors energy for X-class flares, the most powerful kind. Earth is entering the line of fire as the sunspot rotates across the face of the sun. 
SUNSPOT SUNSET: Sunspot AR1476 is so large, people are noticing it without the aide of a solar telescope. The behemoth appears at sunrise and sunset when the light of the low-hanging sun is occasionally dimmed to human visibility. Alberto Lao sends this picture from Manila, the Phillippines


Sunspots could produce powerful solar flares. The sunspots responsible are bigger than Earth.
