Active Solar Flares ahead

The recent spell of low solar activity is over. Sunspots are popping up across the solar disk and one of them, growing sunspot 1226, is crackling with C- and M-class solar flares. So far none of the blasts has been geoeffective, but this could change as the active region turns toward Earth in the days ahead. (Photograph by Karzaman Ahmad)
