Spot number 930 is being enough to be seen with the naked eye providing a suitable solar filter is used such as undamaged eclipse glasses or welders’ goggles to see it.
If you do not have you have an approved filter, you can view it by projecting the Sun’s light through a telescope or binoculars onto a piece of card. (Warning: If you have one of today’s cheaper telescopes with plastic eyepieces, the Sun’s heat can melt the plastic.)

The spot was earlier a very explosive affair as shown here in the SPA gallery in an image by Dave Tyler. Another impressive sequence, from a H-alpha telescope in New Mexico by the National Solar Observatory, revealed a tidal wave spreading from the spot across the Sun.
Since then, the spot has calmed down and become very stable, reducing the likelihood of further flares, according to Spaceweather.com.
