Largest Sun Spot of Cycle 24 on the Horizon (Updated)
07/10/2012 3 Comments
The magnetic field of this enormous sunspot is tangled, and harbors energy for strong solar flares. NOAA forecasters estimate an 80% chance of M-flares and a 25% chance of X-flares during the next 24 hours.
We are prepared for any X-class flares, with handy metal containers to put our portable electronics (cellphones, tablets, kindles) in should a major X-flare erupt. Are you prepared?
