no sun spots at the moment. Coronal hole has gone on walkabouts. What we looking at here is a Sun without sun spots but with something brewing in the nether regions as the surface of the Sun appears to be heaving. According to www.spaceweather.com the surface is full of solar prominences, magnetised plasma jutting tens of thousands of km upwards. The image was captured by the Solar Dynamics Observatory and they say none of these structures are stable. They are prone to explosive mass ejections. As far as sun spots and coronal holes are concerned the sun is at the moment flat lining. Currently, no injections of energy into the earth system. It looks like it might be chilly in Paris next week.
