Good afternoon everyone!
Attached is today’s solar disc viewing plasma at 1 Million Kelvin (AIA 171) to see coronal loops above active regions, 1.25 Million Kelvin to see darker filaments in the corona, and 50,000 Kelvin to see features around sunspot regions in the surface of the chromosphere.
Today’s solar activity has been at quiet levels with only one C-class flare detected from region 2066 in the southern hemisphere.
Currently all sunspot regions remain simple with only C-class flares expected in the next 24 hours.
Geomagnetic activity is also at quiet levels with no disturbances expected in the next 24 hours as well.
