Solar Notes: Incoming southern active region is still the top watch on the sun. It has put out small ejecta today that may bulk up the solar wind in a few days, but not with any major speed ramps apart from what we expect with the coronal hole stream currently on its way.

Earthquake Condition Index B. Bigger quakes took the day off. The coronal holes are turning away here soon.
