Tonight's Sky for April 11: Growing Sunspot AR2529

The Sun's blank surface has been not much to look at for the past few weeks but that has changed in a big way this past weekend as sunspot AR2529 has ballooned in size over just the past couple of days, growing from a small dot into a behemoth the size of Neptune. So, if you have solar viewing glasses or a solar filter for your telescope, be sure to take a look. The best part: the sunspot is still growing.
