New Solar activity

Finally there are signs that the sun is waking from its prolonged period of inactivity.

Sunspot 1057 appeared a couple of days ago and has already thrown a large Coronal Mass Ejection out into space (but not in our direction). The spot is still growing and as it turns to face earth we could be in for increased chances of aurorae.
