Space Weather News for Nov. 7, 2006
Solar activity is about to increase--or so it seems.
An active sunspot is hiding just behind the sun's eastern limb.
For the past three days, it has been erupting, throwing clouds of magnetized
high above the sun's surface where they can be seen from Earth.
Some of these explosions have also produced strong radio bursts
heard in the loudspeakers of ham-radio rigs.
Soon, perhaps later today or tomorrow,
the sun's rotation will turn the sunspot toward Earth,
providing a direct view of the active region.
If it is indeed a big spot, we could be in for some stormy space weather
in the days ahead.
