The Sun Online and solar activity. April 23, 2014

Only 5 low-level C-class flares were recorded over the last 24 hours. Active regions NOAA 2038 (2), 2035 (1) and 2034 (2, from behind the west limb) were the sources. A CME first visible in LASCO/C2 at 15:12UT originated from a filament eruption in the northeast solar quadrant. Another CME, first visible in LASCO/C2 at 16:36UT, was related to a backside solar flare. None of these CMEs has an earth-directed component.
Further C-class flaring is expected. Solar wind speed has been varying between 400 and 450km/s, with Bz between -4 and +2nT. A small equatorial coronal hole will reach the central meridian tonight. The geomagnetic field may be impacted around 27 April. Geomagnetic conditions have been quiet, and are expected to remain so.
