Breaking away for a moment from all of the CME news, a new sunspot is now rotating into view on the eastern limb. Image by SDO.
As you can see in the new Stonyhurst Helio image, I have the new Sunspot rotating into view off the eastern limb circled. You can track existing and possible new Sunspot regions by visiting the SolarHam Farside Watch at this link solarham.com... . This new sunspot formed on March 5th by looking at the previous days images. Will this be the next active Sunspot? Only time will tell.

Well star me afterwards when we passed the deadline and nothing has happened or wrote about it in the news papers....
CME IMPACT: A coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth's magnetic field on March 8th around 1100 UT. The impact was weaker than expected, sparking only a mild (Kp=5) geomagnetic storm. However, the storm could intensify in the hours ahead depending on electromagnetic conditions in the wake of the CME. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.
