Is the Sun Going Dark? Latest Nasa images Reveal TWO Giant Holes – One Covering Almost 10% of the Solar Surface

Nasa has spotted a  pair of huge ‘holes’ on the solar surface.

The larger coronal hole of the two, near the southern pole, covers an estimated 6 to 8-percent of the total solar surface, 142 billion miles – making it one of the largest polar holes scientists have observed in decades.

The smaller coronal hole, towards the opposite pole, is long and narrow, covering about 3.8 billion square miles on the sun – only about 0.16-percent of the solar surface.
