Sunspot Group 2781 Growing

AR 2781 (Nov 5) (SDO/HMI)

Large active region 2781 is expanding in size and despite being a "monster" sunspot, it only has a beta magnetic configuration for the time being. This could change over the next few days as the region continues to evolve. The region continues to turn into an Earth facing position and future eruptions could potentially be directed towards Earth. The largest flare detected up until this update was a fairly minor C7.3 at 00:22 UTC (Nov 5). Solar Cycle 25 is finally starting to step it up a notch!
