I have been watching the sun for many years now and it awesome to see its power unleashed like this. As long of course as an X Class Flare doesn’t hit us directly! They say our power grid couldn’t handle it.  

January 11th 2014

The sun is currently in a very active stage of its 11-year solar weather cyle. The current cycle is  known as Solar Cycle 24. It was expected to peak in late 2013. “The massive sunspot AR 1967 is now wider than our planet Jupiter and it is very active. Yesterday no less than seven M-class solar flares erupted from this region. The sunspot group AR 1967 has continued to unleash several solar flares as it continues to make its two-week trek across the face of the sun. During its last rotation in January the sunspot group was known as AR 1944 and fired off the very first major sun storm of 2014 – an X-class solar flare which as you know the strongest solar flare the sun produces with M Class flares being the more medium range flares. 

Warning: Never look directly at the sun through binoculars, telescopes or with your unaided eye. Severe eye damage, and even blindness, can result. Make sure you have an adequate filter before ever attempting to view the sun directly!
