Nearly blank Sun :-(

The departure of active sunspot AR1504 has left the Earth-facing side of the sun quiet and nearly blank.

Only one small emerging sunspot interrupts the empty expanse photographed this morning by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory.

With no significant active regions facing Earth, NOAA forecasters estimate a mere 1% chance of strong M- or X-class solar flares.

Solar activity should remain low for at least the next 24 hours.
