Solar Image – 04-06-13

The sun today had a nice arrangement of sunspots, with sunspot 1711 being the larges one near center in the image below, and some more coming around the limb of the sun. Sunspots seem relatively quiet, and a geomagnetic storm is only estimated at 15%-20% on April 6-7, so I’m not expecting much, if any, aurora activity to be seen from the low latitudes of the Adirondacks.

Sunspots: 1708, 1710, 1711, 1713, 1714, 1715, 1716, 1717, 1718, 1719
