5th January 2016

.24 hr Summary…
Solar activity was very low. Region 2476 (S09E12, Dao/beta) was the most
complex spot group on the solar disk. The region underwent gradual
dissipation around the leader and trailer spots over the past 24 hours.
Region 2477 (N34E27, Hsx/alpha) was the only other spotted region. It
remained relatively inactive.

A disappearing solar filament (DSF) was observed in SDO/AIA 304 imagery
lifting off from the southeast quadrant at approximately 04/1230 UTC.
The material appeared to be reabsorbed and there is no anticipated
geoeffective component associated with this event. There were no
Earth-directed coronal mass ejections (CMEs) observed in available
satellite imagery during the period.

.Forecast…
Solar activity is expected to be very low with a chance for C-class
flares over the next three days (05-07 Jan).
