20 entries containing sunspot

September 10, 2005
This is Sunspot 798 which just swung into view a couple days ago and has been spewing all kinds of solar flares with more expected. And, of course, this is our cat Tink whom I am pretty sure has something to do with it. Birg... more

Taken yesterday afternoon. Sunspot 794 is the lower left, the rightmost is 792 and center top is 795. They are all relatively well behaved and no aurora are expected from them. ... more

As you can see the Sun is a little spotted this week. These are sunspots: 772, 773, 774, 775, and 776. The larger one on the left is Sunspot 776 and it is still growing. Just the kind of thing to spur on solar flares and then au... more

Looks like a good week for sun watching (with the proper equipment, of course). A couple of large sunspots are now visible along with the the three or four already in sight. Who knows, may even see Aurora activity out of this? ... more

Here's how the sun is looking today... Two different views of today's Sun spots. Today is a little hazy but I caught a brief window of time without much covering the Sun. Both photos are with the D70 and our 120mm tel... more

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Sun Spot 720. Weighing in at seven or more of our Earth's diameters this maelstrom of untold heat seemed to come from out of nowhere. An X-class solar flare is highly possible this weeken... more

So much for the snow! This is our temperature graph from the last day and a half. Guess when we almost hit 60? Six o'clock this morning of all things. New England is whacked. The Mascoma river (outside our office) has fille... more

Not one of my better sunspot photos. We have strong, gusty winds and they are blowing the clouds (and the occasional snow flake) around like crazy so it is hard to get the sun to stay clean and focused long enough for a glamour shot.... more

Sun spot 672 has been acting up over the past few days and maybe more on the way. As Space Weather puts it, Sun spot 672 has a twisted "delta-class" magnetic field that poses a threat for strong M-class solar flares. Northern stat... more

Sunspot 649 is coming back into view. Somewhat smaller than when we last saw it you can see the blemishes or something of its former activity . Before 659 showed up today the Sun was almost completely spot free. ... more

Sunspot 649, on the right, has grown quite a bit since last weekend when I caught a glimpse. Looks like a hurried signature. Here's a zoomed in look. Meanwhile 652, which was equally large before rotating out of view ... more

I've been walking - no, stumbling - around in a Summer-cold yellow green funk for the past week and a half. Horrible. Miserable. We hates it. Probably picked it up out West. Everyone one else in the family has had it. Faith was ... more

Sunspot 652 is around the size of 20 earths at last report but it is starting to shrink. Yesterday it hurled a couple coronal mass ejections our way, which may make for increased aurora activity tonight (if you aren't clouded over li... more

The moon last night and, below, the sunspots as of yesterday afternoon. Don't forget to glance outside off and on throughout the night. Possibility of Aurora. If I see some I'll make a post here. Better yet, go for a walk down a... more

It's a monster. Sunspot 652 generated a large solar flare today and while not headed directly towards us, we'll catch some of the edge effect. Increased chance of auroras July 21st and 22nd. Ted says he used binoculars to project the sun... more

Space Weather shows a large sunspot rotating into view. It blasted a massive solar flare last week while pointed the other direction (away from us). Unfortunately it will be a week or more until we see sunshine or stars in New Hampshire... more

There are a few large sunspots that I caught on camera this week. While sizing the photo I thought I'd grab a picture of the earth and throw it in for scale. A quick google shows the radius of the earth at 6,378 kilometers and the sun a... more

Fun weekend here in geekville. On Sunday I had StarBand installed at the house. If you aren't familiar with starband, or it's competitors, it's a two way internet connection over satellite. Download speeds are up around 600k while upload... more
