The official Sunspot number for Oct 21,2011 is 207. This is a new record for Solar Cycle 24. Despite the amount of Sunspots, only low level M-Class flares have taken place thus far. This could soon change.
Solar activity has been moderate with low level M-Class flares taking place. Several sunspots regions continue to transit the earth facing side of the sun, including big Sunspot 1324.
Sunspots 1314, 1319 and 1317 are all heading for the western limb and will soon be out of direct earth view. At the same time, a new batch of Sunspots are rotating into view on the eastern limb. Stay tuned as things continue to progress in the right direction.
