A closer peek at that monster sunspot

Active Region 2192 isn’t the biggest sunspot ever, but it’s definitely worth taking note of.  It could swallow the Earth, quite easily.  Heck, it could swallow Jupiter.  SDO got this amazing video of it growing as the Sun’s rotation pulls it around to the front.  It’ll be facing us in a couple of days.
