Solar Notes: The spots are not going to give us a show, at least not until they turn. Interestingly, the incoming spot behind the SE limb has quieted as it approaches our visibility.

Earthquake Watch Score: 5. The coronal fields are closed, the power has NOT been updating on ISWA for 24 hours. The planets don’t line up until near the end of the month. We have space weather energy integrating now and are WAY below average quaking for the month of December. Recent-rumble-locations: Vanuatu and Canada
