There was maybe-an-X-flare from old 1678 on the far-side. This region will be coming over the limb in 4-5 days and it still looks potent:

I agree fully,me thinks X or High M due to the B9.8 registered on GOES X-ray at the time : )

[link to www.solen.info]

Rundown -

'The geomagnetic field was quiet to unsettled on March 4. Solar wind speed at SOHO ranged between 354 and 440 km/s. A transition to a low speed stream from CH557 was observed near 01h UTC at SOHO.

Solar flux measured at 20h UTC on 2.8 GHz was 114.3 (increasing 10.8 over the last solar rotation). The Potsdam WDC planetary A index was 4 (STAR Ap - based on the mean of three hour interval ap indices: 4.0). Three hour interval K indices: 31111001 (planetary), 22122211 (Boulder).

The background x-ray flux was at the class B3 level.

At midnight UTC the visible solar disk had 7 spotted active regions (in 2K resolution SDO images).

Region 11681 [N17W26] decayed slowly and quietly.
Region 11682 [S19W83] decayed slowly and quietly.
Region 11683 [S16E16] decayed slowly and quietly.
Region 11685 [S16E36] gained spots and was quiet.
Region 11686 [S13W46] developed further and had a small magnetic delta structure in the northern part of a central penumbra at the end of the day. C flares are possible.
Region 11687 [N08E55] decayed slowly and quietly.
New region 11689 [S18E68] rotated into view on March 3 and got its NOAA number the next day
'

'Forecast

The geomagnetic field is expected to be quiet to unsettled on March 5-7 due to effects from CH557 on March 5 and from CH558 on March 6-7. Quiet conditions are likely on March 8
' [link to www.solen.info] .

66,you need to read the comments on the regions at Solen - they been up there since I first mentioned them Hours back...seems NOAA may be weighting the Sunspot Number -

1684 'part of AR 11681

should be deleted

And 1688 'part of AR 11685, region should be deleted'

I'm in agreement, after reading up on the man you have to give him this minimum, if thats what we're given.

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan
