It's coming around the Sun, its flaring like crazy, its-- Sunspot 1302! What will it do next? Only a time traveler could tell you, or if you read this in the future, maybe you will hear about it here.
There was an X-class flare just the other day, on the 22nd of September.
Today, the 24th of September there was another! ( click here for details )

Here we can see the CME eject and graze the earth. Keep watching this sunspot!

(TheWeatherSpace.com) - Sunspot group 1302 poses a major risk for X-class solar flares and it is still growing, facing Earth this next week.
This sunspot is the largest of solar cycle 24 and has produced powerful M and X class solar flares over the last couple of days, all not directed at our planet. However, this will change this coming week.
Sunspot group 1302 is about as long as the width of the planet Jupiter. This is a major group and it has magnetic field readings unstable enough for very strong X-class solar flares.
TheWeatherSpace.com will continue to monitor this developing situation as Sunspot 1302 rotates directly in-line to Earth this next week.
HD from Sept 19th to Sept 26th 2011
There have been a lot of CME's from 1302 on Monday, September 26th.

According to the experts of knowledge at Wikipedia, "Sunspots are temporary phenomena on the photosphere of the Sun that appear visibly as dark spots compared to surrounding regions. They are caused by intense magnetic activity, which inhibits convection by an effect comparable to the eddy current brake, forming areas of reduced surface temperature. Like magnets, they also have two poles. Although they are at temperatures of roughly 3000–4500 K (2727–4227 °C), the contrast with the surrounding material at about 5,780 K leaves them clearly visible as dark spots, as the intensity of a heated black body (closely approximated by the photosphere) is a function of temperature to the fourth power. If the sunspot were isolated from the surrounding photosphere it would be brighter than an electric arc. Sunspots expand and contract as they move across the surface of the Sun and can be as large as 80,000 kilometers (50,000 mi) in diameter, making the larger ones visible from Earth without the aid of a telescope."
