Solar Activity Report for 10/27/04
- All is quiet for the time being, despite there being six numbered
sunspot regions visible. If we did receive any sort of CME impact
from the flares a few days ago, it didn't have any geomagnetic effect
to speak of. Of the six sunspot regions visible, two of them, regions
687 and 691, have the potential for producing a significant flare.
That's about it for this time around.
