Large New Sunspot AR2786 Comes Into Full View

AR2786 is now starting to move away from the east solar limb and it’s a bit of a whopper! Situated 15 degrees south of the Sun’s equator and sunspot type Cko, AR2786 is much larger than the Earth and could become flare active. AR2785, lying just ahead of AR2786 on the solar disc, is already solar flare active. AR2783 can also be seen further west.
