Sunspot AR2192 just keeps growing!

From Space Weather: "AR2192 is the biggest sunspot in nearly 25 years, and it is still growing. The active region now covers 2750 millionths of the solar disk, an area equivalent to 33 planet Earths skinned and spread out flat."

In the last 24 hours we've had an X2 flare (twice as strong as an X1), followed by 7 M class flares. An X3 (three times as strong) and X1 featured over the weekend. That translates to a LOT of energy coming down onto us and through us. 

Thank you so much to everyone sharing how you are feeling - it is incredible how many people are going through similar experiences!!
