CME erupts incoming sunspot

After a very long and quiet period, we haven’t seen much from the sun, especially for CME’s. The first legitimate sunspot of 2017 is just now beginning to rotate into earth’s direction. Just before it did so, though, it released a pretty decent CME which thankfully will be missing earth. Judging from the recent past, I won’t be expecting that this sunspot will do much while facing earth. However, as it begins to rotate out of view, if it lives that long, it may give us another display of what it can do.
