    We are lucky to see sunspot activity this week, although it is only one. Sunspot 999 is currently in its most geo-effective position -- near the center of the Sun -- as we see it. This is another old Solar Cycle 23 spot. The sunspot number for the last fe

    It is exciting to see heightened solar activity one week into spring. Currently, three sunspots are visible: 987, 988 and 989. The consensus says that all seem to be old Solar Cycle 23 spots. But with the three sunspot groups so close to the Sun's equator
