Solar activity remains quiet for now, but new group of sunspots emerging

Solar activity has been relatively low over the past two weeks with not much in the way of sunspot activity, but scientists at NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory are monitoring a new group of sunspots emerging over the sun's southeastern limb today.

Over the next few days as this group of sunspots turns toward Earth, scientists will get a better idea on their potential for solar flares in the near future. A clearer view of their magnetic architecture will allow the folks at NASA to make better assessments. In the meantime, forecasters have increased the chance of an M-class eruption to 10% over the next day. This activity could increase significantly into next week.
