It is widely known that the Sun has 'spots'--dark areas on its surface that are well known to contain strong magnetic fields, much stronger than the Earth's field. The number of spots seen on the Sun waxes and wanes with a period of roughly eleven years, the 'solar cycle'.



Determining the state of the corona prior to coronal mass ejections (CMEs) is crucial to understanding and ultimately predicting solar eruptions.
