Sunspots exhibit other predictable behavior. If you map the location of the spots on the Sun’s surface over the course of a solar cycle, the pattern they make is shaped like a butterfly.

The Sun at this point will be a "red giant" times brighter than its present luminosity. After the red giant phase, the Sun will shrink to a white dwarf star (about the size of the Earth) and slowly cool for several billion more years.

Galileo’s telescopic discoveries, and especially his observation of sunspots, caused great debate in an age when the heavens were thought to be perfect and unchanging. Christoph Scheiner, a Jesuit mathematician, argued that sunspots were planets or moons crossing in front of the Sun.

Galileo, on the other hand, countered that the spots were on or near the surface of the Sun itself, and he. Sunspots are darker, cooler areas on the surface of the sun in a region called the photosphere.

The photosphere has a temperature of 5, degrees Kelvin. Scientific American is the essential guide to the most awe-inspiring advances in science and technology, The Role of Sunspots and Solar Winds in.

When, however, that book was at the printer's, in Aprilhe turned his attention to sunspots with the help of his protégé Benedetto Castelli, who was in Florence at the time.

Astronomers in ancient China noticed sunspots several thousand years ago. The I-Ching or "Book of Changes," which dates back to the 12th century B.C., mentions a "Ri Zhong Jian Mei," which means "a star was seen within the sun" in first written record of a sunspot sighting dates to 28 B.C., when it was noted that "the sun was yellow at its rising and a black vapor as large as a.

Sunspots are relatively cool blotches on the sun’s surface (Figure 1). The number of sunspots is an indicator of how active the sun is. It has the most sunspots when it’s most active—at solar maximum—and has a slightly higher total energy output during that time.

Likewise, the sun has the fewest sunspots at solar minimum. The number of sunspots varies over an year solar cycle.

Sunspots can change continuously and may last for only a few hours to days; or even months for the more intense groups. The total number of sunspots has long been known to vary with an approximately year repetition known as the solar cycle.

The peak of sunspot activity is known as solar maximum and the lull is known as solar minimum. sunspots, dark, usually irregularly shaped spots on the sun's surface that are actually solar magnetic storms. The spots are darker because the temperature of the spots is lower than that of the surrounding photosphere photosphere, luminous, apparently opaque layer of gases that forms the visible surface of the sun or any other star.
