The sunspots that caused the solar flares and coronal mass ejections in late October and early November have rotated around the sun and are again visible from Earth. The NOAA Space Weather Advisories (www.sec.noaa.gov/advisories/bulletins.html) said all three regions have decreased in size, but they are "bright and show considerable magnetic complexity."
SpaceWeather.com reported auroras from a geomagnetic storm Nov. 20 were visible in Huntsville, Ala. In addition to the links above, another site with photos and graphics of solar events is the Lockheed Martin Solar and Asrophysics Solarsoft Web site at www.lmsal.com/solarsoft/latest_events.
