Ouch! Look at that bruise! Okay. Who punched the Sun? Not cool. Oh....wait. Could it be some kind of mysterious magnetic structure? Yes! Some solar action! Finally.
Sunspot 2529 rotated into view around April 10-11, 2016. The previous sunspot that we tracked migrated out of view, and the pore vanished. What will happen to sunspot 2529? Will it spit a flare at Earth and fry every single satellite in orbit? Yes! I mean…perhaps. Who knows.
Sunspot 2529 might be the peaceful kind of magnetic anomalies. If we take in account the Sun’s current state of behavior, then this solar black eye will probably assimilate into the photosphere.
