Solar activity has been low with only low level C-Class activity taking place since the C9.5 Flare early on Tuesday. The Solar X-Ray background levels are hovering near the C1 level. There will remain the chance for an isolated M-Class flare. Another sunspot group is hiding on the eastern limb and will soon begin to rotate into view. (SolarHam)
