Update On The Growing Sunspot

Seems that our sunspot is continuing to grow. If you look at the above image and compare the two sunspots you will notice some drastic changes. The large incoming spot is growing and the polarities are becoming more defined. It continues to spark off small snaps and pops. While the earth facing sunspot is loosing it’s energy and spreading. On the northern outgoing region, has a small something developing region that has popped up over night. I would say our sun is far from done. I do not think we are yet into range where this will hit earth just yet but it is coming closer hour by hour.
