Big sunspot

Here's a shot from the sunrise this morning showing the great #sunspot that's currently visible on the Sun. I could clearly see the sunspot in the viewfinder of my camera. It's twice the size of Earths diameter and is one of the biggest spots for a long time.

Yesterday it produced a strong solar flare that produced a CME (Coronal mass ejection) that is almost certainly heading for Earth. So be on a lookout for #aurora the upcoming days.
