Solar flare activity on the increase

From our friends at we learn:

RADIO-ACTIVE SUNSPOT: A new sunspot is growing near the sun's eastern limb, and it is crackling with solar flares. Yesterday, one of the flares, a C1-class explosion, unleashed a radio burst heard in loudspeakers of shortwave radios across the United States. Ham radio operators may wish to point their antennas at the sun in the days ahead in case this activity continues.
Visit to hear the sounds of this "radio-active" sunspot.
