No obvious on-disc signatures of the possibly associated CME were observed. More will be reported when coronagraph data become available. NOAA AR 2770 has still beta configuration of its photospheric magnetic field, and might be the source of B-class or isolated C-class flares in the coming hours.

During last 24 hours there were no Earth directed CMEs.

Solar protons remained at the background level.

Solar wind speed is presently about 420 km/s, and the interplanetary magnetic field magnitude is 4 nT.

Finally, SIDC reports geomagnetic conditions are quiet, and we expect them to stay so in the coming hours.

Now . . . let's take a little tour into the realm of:
