Upcoming spot has a nice loop, big loop.

This cycle has started somewhat fast. If december holds more than 30 spots avg, and it continues to show activity, by the end of next year it could be 150-200. It this pace keeps even brief momentum.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79721072


Yes, old '86 still has a sizable magnetic footprint. Check it out in the AIA 171a movie:

Cycle 25 has barely begun... both M-flares detected were from the far side and the Northern hemisphere has barely produced a spot yet.

The Sun is a chaotic system and we'll see great outbursts and strange lulls in activity. It's truly amazing to live at a time when we have such advanced sensing mechanisms in place and, for the most part, accessible to the public and billions around the globe.

Heliophysics is one of the few cutting-edge sciences you can research in real-time from your laptop or phone.

I 'm thrilled to see a non-spotless day!

Maverick astrophysicist calls for unusually intense solar cycle, straying from consensus view


But a prominent astrophysicist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Scott McIntosh, foresees the sun going gangbusters. The cycle is already off to a fast start, coinciding with the recent publication of McIntosh’s paper in Solar Physics. The study, with contributions from several of his colleagues, forecasts the nascent sunspot cycle to become one of the strongest ever recorded.

 Quoting: OpenEnded..


Great find, OE. cool2 I hope he's correct, as this is last solar cycle I'll be alive to witness, LOL.

I almost always find MSM articles about solar activity to cringeworthy and stupid. At least this reporter highlighted that our knowledge of the sun's mechanics is rudimentary at best (and probably completely wrong).

Mr. McIntosh has a novel view of solar magnetism and he seems to put forth a plausible theory. This is why we WATCH...so much is yet to be learned about Sol

If we can't figure out how the sun operates, how can we pretend to know how trillions of other stars function? Quasars, Pulsars, Magnetars, Black Holes, Red Giants, etc.,...????

We really don't know crap.

From the above linked article-

For now, the panel has remained quiet about his research, but McIntosh says that — if his predictions are realized — the field will have a lot of work to do.
“This work is pointing in a direction which says much of the past physics isn’t quite right,” he said. “If we’re right, it points to a quite different way in how the sun works.”

GEOMAGNETIC STORM WATCH: A minor (G1-class) geomagnetic storm is possible on Dec. 23rd when a fast-moving stream of solar wind hits Earth's magnetic field. The gaseous material is flowing from a northern hole in the sun's atmosphere. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras when the solar wind arrives.

I'm proud to announce before SWPC we have a new sunspot which I'll take the liberty to name AR2795. I believe its the return of 2789 (maybe). Neither NOAA nor SolarHam has it listed as a returning region.

We may have a new active region in the northern hemisphere. This AR appears very bright in the STEREO Ahead EUVI and will come over in a few days time.

A MAGNETIC CANYON THE SIZE OF MARS: Sunspot AR2795 is splitting apart. A magnetic canyon as wide as Mars has formed in the sunspot's leading core, shown here in a composite image from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory:

https://imgur.com/eS8VT2I


Sunspots are islands of magnetism floating on the surface of the sun. AR2795 looks a bit like Hawaii. SDO's magnetic map reveals a deep fissure in the "Big Island." This could be a sign of intensifying turbulence in the magnetic dynamo deep beneath the sunspot. If so, more fractures may be in the offing.

Amateur astronomers with safely-filtered solar telescopes are encouraged to monitor developments.

THE LAST AURORAS OF 2020: A stream of solar wind is heading for Earth. Estimated time of arrival: Dec. 29th. The minor jet of gas flowing from a small hole in the sun's atmosphere might be enough to spark the last auroras of 2020 around the Arctic Circle.

AURORA SURPRISE: There were no geomagnetic storms on Dec. 26th. So where did these auroras come from? "Last night, the Northern Lights made a remarkable appearance over Utsjoki in the far north of Finland," reports Rayann Elzein, who photographed the display in temperatures that plunged to -36 C:

https://imgur.com/KBvs7dK


"It was so cold ... but worth the chill to witness this beautiful show," says Elzein. "For about 30-40 minutes, the auroras danced overhead with super fast movements. The highlight was a bright purple nitrogen fringe!"

Elzein lives in the right place to see auroras without geomagnetic storms. The Finnish Lapland is located beneath Earth's persistent auroral oval. A gentle rain of solar wind electrons, guided to Earth by our planet's curved magnetic field, creates a polar ring of Northern Lights that intersects the latitude of Utsjoki. Often dim but sometimes surprisingly bright, auroras appear there on most dark nights--no storm required.

SUNSPOTS AT SUNRISE: As 2020 comes to an end, photographers are starting to notice something they haven't seen in a while: little black spots. "I saw them at sunrise this morning in the Alps," says Michel Willemin who sends this picture from Plateau de Diesse, Switzerland:

https://imgur.com/xHhTS81


"Two sunspot groups were clearly visible," he says.

For much of the past 4 years, Solar Minimum has supressed the production of sunspots, keeping the solar disk blank and featureless. "The re-appearance sunspots in 2020 is a clear sign of rising solar activity," notes Willemin. Indeed, Solar Cycle 25 is rapidly gaining steam; 2021 promises many more "little black spots" and, with them, solar flares, CMEs, and geomagnetic storms. Sunrise is just the beginning.
