CLEVELAND - Keep your eyes peeled to the night sky this weekend. The sun is at it again.
It's being called one of the largest sunspots in years -- and it just erupted over the sun's northeastern limb a few days ago.
The photo shows a group of sunspots measuring 40,000 km wide and at least twice that in length. It's so big, it can easily be seen through a backyard solar telescope. Two or three of the sunspot cores (dark spots) are wider than Earth itself.
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
