Far Side Of The Sun

MEANWHILE ON THE FARSIDE: For the past week, all eyes have been on the Earth-side of the sun, where sunspots 1158 and 1161-1162 have unleashed some of the strongest flares in years. Meanwhile, the farside of the sun has been busy, too. Regard this movie from NASA's STEREO-B probe covering the first 20 hours of Feb. 19th. A huge active region is transiting the farside and crackling with flares; it will turn toward Earth in about a week. What's the best way to keep track of the sun's farside? Download 3D Sun for the iPhone and iPad. (Note: An Android version will soon be available.)


Looks like we're in for more sun activity in the next couple of weeks.
