Solar Activity Report for 1/12/06
- There sure isn't much to report, but I figured I'd better check in
lest people think I've flown the coop! Looking at the X-ray plot over
the last 24 hours was interesting. It was completely flat until an
A-class flare finally produced at least a small amount of action.
There is but a single very small sunspot region visible. Things could
get a little more interesting in 48 to 72 hours as a solar wind gusts
from a coronal hole that has rotated into an Earth-pointing position
are projected to arrive.
