Question- Do the solar disturbances direclty affect the size, shape, location, frequency, or characteristics of sun spots?

Predictions- Solar disturbances will or do have a direct affect on the sun spots.

Proposal- We will -a) research NASA's records on solar disturbances, b) observe the sun and its spots, c) research the history of solar disturbances and their connection to the sun spots, d)make a connection with seasons, weather, and time of day to sun spots

Expectations- We expect to find a relationship between the spots and solar disturbances. We also expect to find out why sun spots exist and what their characteristics are.
