Sun: Four sunspots. Since April 1st, AR2644 has erupted nearly a dozen times, producing a series of M-class solar flares. Almost every part of Earth experienced a shortwave radio blackout at least once during the fusillade.  Earth-effects will subside as the sunspot rotates onto the far side of the sun.

There is still a chance of flares, however.  Another large sunspot remains on the solar disk: AR2645. The behemoth active region has an unstable 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbours energy for strong explosions. (spaceweather.com)
 
Stoke lost 1 – 0 to Burnley on Tuesday. Liverpool at the Bet 365 Stadium (Stoke’s home ground, re-named) on Saturday. I’ll be there but I don’t expect too much. We are going through a poor patch, we cannot buy a goal!
