Well after the other week when the press went way over the top when they claimed that we would enter another Ice age due to the lack of sunspots for several days, it was good to see that during the last few days a few large sunspots have appeared.

The large sunspot  AR2569, along with AR2565, AR2567 which are facing earth should produce a flare which is good for anyone able to see the aurora, not so for us in Shetland unless you are up just after mid night when it is dark.

It was good to see the sun as Shetland has been covered in thick fog for the last couple of days.
