Huge Sunspots

article's image

Sunspots 1579 and 1582 are so large that observers have been able to see them without the use of a solar telescope. While the sunspots are each as wide as the Earth, they are not particularly active, and pose only a small risk of damaging flares. Photo by Lauri Kangas of Ontario. More at Spaceweather.com.
