SUNSPOT SUNSET: Despite its unstable magnetic field, big sunspot AR1785 has resisted exploding. Even so, it's putting on a good show. Pete Lawrence of Selsey UK photographed the active region as a dark-mark in the sunset on July 9th:
"Summer has arrived in the UK and there have been some fantastic sunsets," says Lawrence. "This one was a beauty with the current crop of sunspots in view."
Pretty sunsets could give way to actual solar flares if the magnetic field of AR1785 finally erupts. For the 5th day in a row, flare probabilities remain high: NOAA forecasters estimate a 55% chance of M-flares and a 10% chance of X-flares on July 10th. Solar flare alerts: text, voice.
