SUBSIDING CHANCE OF FLARES: NOAA forecasters have decreased the odds of an X-class flare from 30% (yesterday) to 20% (today). This is in response to decay in the magnetic field of sunspot AR3311, currently the biggest threat for flares on the solar disk. 20% is still plenty, though, for an X-class explosion.

NAKED-EYE SUNSPOT: Got eclipse glasses? Put them on and look at the sun. Sunspot AR3310 is big enough to see without magnification. South Korean astronomer Bum-Suk Yeom created this infographic. (Above)
“A giant sunspot is crossing the sun’s disk, and I could see it clearly with solar glasses,” says Yeom. “Caution! You must use eclipse glasses or solar filters to protect your eyes.”
In addition, Canadian wildfires are creating a type of natural solar filter for observers in parts of North America. Thick smoke dims the setting sun, revealing sunspots that would normally be lost in the glare. Here are some examples from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Nebraska.

Times have changed with unlimited options. This was a big hit back in the day. We were EASILY amused and commercial breaks only lasted for 1 minute.
This was someone’s “next best idea.” I’d hate for you to miss it. In another 66 years, today’s stuff will look just as cool.
