Beautiful shot of sunspot group AR1339 taken by an amateur astronomer. AR1339 has already produced an X class solar flare and a non Earth-directed coronal mass ejection; as this group rotates to face Earth however, there is always a chance for another eruption accompanied by a CME aimed at Earth. Aurora watchers, cross your fingers!
