The Sun has been quiet in activity over the past 24 hours. Still having a relatively stable magnetic configuration, the lone visible sunspot group AR2680 produced few weak B-class solar flares which will not significantly affect Earth.

The latest sunspot number (based on visual count and Wolf number calculation) is 11.

With this stance, space weather agencies* forecast very low solar activity to continue with minimum solar flare activity, ranging up to C-class intensity. The extent of the frequency and intensity of the Sun’s activity will highly depend on the magnetic flux fluctuations happening in the visible ARs in the coming days. Close monitoring is being conducted by numerous space weather agencies for any significant development.
