From July 5 - 17, 2017, NASA spacecraft observed a sunspot as it grew and eventually rotated out of view. / Entre el 5 y el 17 de julio de 2017, la nave espacial de la NASA observó una mancha solar a medida que ésta iba creciendo, hasta que finalmente dio la vuelta y salió del campo visual.

July 9, 2017 M1.3 solar flare / Llamarada solar del 9 de julio de 2017 M1.3

Then the spacecraft repositioned during a calibration maneuver. / Luego la nave espacial se reposicionó durante una maniobra de calibración.

July 14, 2017 - M2.4 solar flare and an eruption of material called a coronal mass ejection or CME. /
Llamarada solar y erupción de material llamada eyección de la masa coronal o CME (en inglés) del 14 de julio de 2017 - M2.4.

Researchers modeled the solar storm's path through space. / Los investigadores hicieron un modelo de la trayectoria de la tormenta solar a través del espacio.

Two days later, the CME sparked enhanced aurora on Earth. / Dos días más tarde, la eyección de la masa coronal desencadenó sobre la Tierra una aurora más intensa de lo usual.

By then, the sunspot was almost out of view. / Para entonces, la mancha solar estaba casi por fuera del campo visual.

So long, sunspot. / Hasta luego, mancha solar.
