Update: 4:40pm Eastern Time

Solar Notes: The sunspots look the part… but that’s about it. Incoming space weather is the primary conservation goal.

Earthquake Watch Score: 6. The coronal fields are open but the holes facing earth are so small I can’t pick them out on the SDO. The planets are all out of alignment currently, but space weather is now a factor again. As the speed falls below 300km/s again we move to a score of 6 to 7.
