big new sunspot!
can easily see this huge sun spot (much bigger than the earth) naked-eye with a pair of solar eclipse solar shades.
do not look at the sun directly unless you have special solar filters or eclipse sunglasses specially designed to look at the sun. normal sunglasses will NOT protect your eyes.
very strong auroral activity is forecast, and we're off to great falls in virginia, tonight to see if we can spot some celestial beauty.
