Sunspot AR 2192

As solar observers are no doubt aware, a very large sunspot (AR2192) has rotated towards Earth.  It's already produced an X1-class flare and is poised to produce another.  If you have a solar filter handy, it's really worth your time to check out this monster (125,000 km wide)!  It's also visible to the unaided eye using a 14 shade welders glass.  I haven't seen a sunspot this size in quite a long time, and it is breathtaking through solar scopes!  If you have any questions on how to safely observe the Sun, please contact the Solar Section of the AAVSO.
