Erupting sunspots could produce more bright Northern Lights this weekend across northern Ohio

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.
