Astro Pic of the Day...Sunspots from 11, hurling energy Right Now! w/ Interesting planetary alignment!
[link to apod.nasa.gov]

" Awash in a sea of plasma and anchored in magnetic fields, sunspots are planet-sized, dark islands in the solar photosphere, the bright surface of the Sun. Dark because they are slightly cooler than the surrounding surface, this group of sunspots is captured in a close-up telescopic snapshot from July 11. The field of view spans nearly 100,000 miles. They lie in the center of active region AR1520, now crossing the Sun's visible face. In fact, an X-class solar flare and coronal mass ejection erupted from AR1520 on July 12, releasing some of the energy stored in the region's twisted magnetic fields. Headed this way, the coronal mass ejection is expected to arrive today and may trigger geomagnetic storms. As a result, some weekend auroral displays could grace planet Earth's skies along with Sunday's predawn conjunction of bright planets and crescent Moon."

"You won’t want to miss Sunday's spectacular predawn compact gathering of the three brightest night sky objects, the Moon, Venus, and Jupiter...

...he gathering of objects will appear low in the east-northeast sky as twilight begins to brighten, about one and three quarters hours before sunrise. What will seem to be the brightest "star" in the grouping, about 4 degrees lower right of the Moon, will actually be the planet Venus. The next brightest "star", within 7 degrees above Venus, is also a planet, Jupiter. Within 3 degrees to Venus' upper right is the star Aldebaran, marking the eye of Taurus, the Bull. The views through binoculars will be exquisite: Several stars in the same field of view as Aldebaran are members of a cluster of stars called the Hyades. Another star cluster, much more compact, is the dipper-shaped Pleiades or Seven Sisters, within 9 degrees above Jupiter on Sunday morning.

Visualize this scene in three dimensions!"
