MM#009 Default Target



Dear Collaborators,

Solar activity continues at an extremely low level. The GOES
soft X-ray flux is flat at ~A6. The visible solar disk is spotless,
even without any features (plage, filament, surge, etc.) in the
H-alpha images. Yesterday's target has completely rotated over
the west limb. Today the target will switch to a bright EUV "point"
region in the southeast quadrant, where seems to be emerging
new flux. No flare activity is expected in the following 24 hours.

The approximate position of the target on June 19 at 07:30 UT is:

S04E70 (-890", -20")
