Solar activity on UT day 8 April was at very low levels, with no
notable flares. However, a relatively large region (Region 2529) has
recently rotated into an earth-facing position. So there is chance
that this region as it evolves can trigger C-class flares and even
isolated stronger M-class flares. Another interesting activity noticed
over the last 24 hours was an eruptive filament,approximately 10
degrees long, from the northeast quadrant (N05E40) at about 08/2128
UT. Appropriate satellite data at the time of writing was not
available to conclude if this event had triggered an earth-directed
CME. The solar wind is trending towards ambient levels and so the
geomagnetic activity is expected to be at mostly quiet levels today,
April 9. High-frequency radio communication conditions are expected to
be depressed today, 9 April, due to the aftermath of active conditions
observed on UT day 7 April.
