Update: 5:45pm Eastern Time

Solar Notes: I still have confidence in this little guy fighting for strength in the middle of those decaying relics– the mixing would come fast just behind the leading positive umbra. That big guy down south incoming on the limb popped before it faced earth – let’s see how shy he gets now.

Earthquake Watch Score: 6. The coronal fields are opening and the inner power appears to be shifting around. If it comes to face earth with the fields open we would be in 7-8 range. If you see such things happening, don’t be too shy to say something 🙂
