Update: 6:45pm Eastern Time

Earthquake Watch Score: 6 to 7. Coronal hole power is weak according to ISWA, but I’m skeptical; that looks like a significant earth-facing opening. Venus conjoining Saturn today to compliment a full moon. Coronal hole stream should wane soon. ***Upon a drop in solar wind speed, consider the score to be a solid 7.

Solar Notes: The sunspot development is primary, filament stability should be monitored.
