The Sun is waking up.......

There was a solar eruption this week. Quite pretty.

As some of you know, scientists have been predicting that 2010 will be the transition year for the Sun to move from solar minimum to solar maximum. Which means the Sun spots and all the action will begin to turn towards Earth. The Solar Maximum lasts about 11 years.

It appears the Sun is waking up from his slumber.

What does this mean? Apparently this eruption will not have any effects on Earth. Those are to come.

In the meantime enjoy the pretty pictures.
