Sunspots: Coming and going

Two large, complex sunspots are moving across the face of the sun. One, which produced considerable solar activity in the past weeks, has almost rotated off completely. A new sunspot rounded into view on Nov. 11, 2013 and is now making its way across the Earth-side of the sun. An active region can contain one or more sunspots. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration numbers active regions consecutively as they are observed on the sun.
