Sunspot 1039 Active

From http://www.spaceweather.com

Sunspot 1039 is putting on a good show for amateur astronomers. “The active region sizzled and popped as I photographed it on Dec. 31st,” reports Michael Buxton of Ocean Beach, California. Click on the image to view two hours of action:



“It is quite interesting to watch as energy surges and swirls around the sunspot’s dark cores,” he says.

2010 appears to be picking up where 2009 left off–with sunspot activity on the rise.

Lets hope the increased sunspot activitiy continues to improve radio propogation.
