Description
Hello friends at SPACE.com Departing sunspot group AR 1944. Get out there solar guys, I made these images a few moments ago (01-11-2014 @ 11:17:50 CST close up) with my homemade 108mm solar telescope! Spectacular, and a little scary, Sunspot Group AR 1944. Reportedly quiet now, the sunspot still has the potential for CME's and is said to be seven times the size of the Earth!
