Sun. August 12, 2022.
Lots of sun spots today.

@citizen_astro Do numerous sunspots indicate more solar storms are on the horizon‽ (pun not intended)
@darnell yes, I think generally sunspots are a precursor to other events such as solar flares. They are indicators of intense magnetic activity, and are common in particularly active regions of the Sun.
@citizen_astro That is not good, especially for those who use satellite internet. 📡 🛰️
Also, the crew in the International Space Station must be nervously watching as well.
Just a personal instance of Mastodon that is intended for one person. :-)
