New Sunpot 1492 Popping With C Flares

 Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 24/2100Z to 25/2100Z: Solar activity was low. A few nominal C-class flares occurred. Two new active Regions, 1491 (N23W29) and 1492 (S13E65) were numbered today. A few CMEs were observed during the period, but all appear to be limb events and non-geoeffective.

According to the 3D Sun app, another active region is approaching just behind this one and could boost solar activity even more when it emerges in the days ahead. Stay tuned.
