Good morning sun freaks. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Wednesday. Solar activity is currently at low levels. A handful of C-Flares were observed this morning around region 2164 in the southwest quadrant. Region 2158, the source of an X-Class solar on Sept. 10 which led directly to a strong geomagnetic storm on Sept. 12, is now rotating onto the west limb and out of direct Earth view. A new sunspot formed in the southeast quadrant and was numbered 2168 overnight. It is not considered a threat for strong solar flares at this time. Elsewhere, a pair of alpha magnetic spots rotated into view off the east limb and will be assigned numbers later today. There will remain a chance for at least C-Class solar flares today. No Earth directed coronal mass ejections were observed during the past day.
