The Sun is no active zones for the fifth day


On the Ground facing the Sunny side no spots for the fifth day. This is the longest no spots since 2010.

Sunspots — dark areas on the Sun, temperatures of about 1500 K compared to the surrounding areas of the photosphere. Observed on the solar disk (by using optical devices, and in the case of large patches and to the naked eye) in the form of dark spots.

Sunspots are regions of strong output in the photosphere (up to several thousand Gauss) magnetic fields. Darkening of the spots in the photosphere due to magnetic field suppression of convective motions of matter and, consequently, decrease the flow of heat transfer in these areas.

The number of sunspots (and associated number of wolf) is one of the main indicators of solar magnetic activity.
