Solar Activity

There were no more X flares, but the Sun remained active this week. There are currently 9 active regions on the disk. There was a large M flare today, although the data is still too new to tell easily where this flare came from. It is likely that the Sun will remain somewhat active, and the tohban recommends staying in Active/Vigorous decimation mode.
