Update #1: 4:55pm Eastern Time

Earthquake Condition Index B+
Coronal Hole, Neptune/Solar Conjunction, and stronger space-weather then we expected.

Solar Notes: There is no magnetic complexity to the earth facing groups. It appears there may be some to the northern sunspot groups turning in behind the earth-facing group, but analysis will wait another day.

EXPECTED SOLAR UPTICK – the heliocentric planetary positions favor increased solar activity between now and the middle of March (not to mention the return of some major sunspots)
