Finally, some sunspots
 __________________



6 Jul 09 - After one of the longest sunspot droughts in modern times, solar activity has picked up.

While not dramatic by historic standards, the new group of sunspots is the most significant in many months.

"This is the best sunspot I've seen in two years," observer Michael Buxton of Ocean Beach, Calif., said on Spaceweather.com.

The past two years have marked the lowest low in the cycle since 1913, and for a while scientists were wondering if activity would ever pick back up.

Astronomers had been predicting that the next peak in solar activity, in 2013, might be one of the most active in decades. Scientists now expect the next peak to be modest.
