Spaceweather.com reports, an active sunspot group is emerging over the sun's northeastern limb. There are at least two dark cores larger than Earth, with a possibility of more spots trailing behind. This sunspot group has been very active, hurling CMEs and plumes of plasma over the edge of the sun. Future explosions may be Earth-directed. As seen to me this morning!
