Ok...I just had never seen the website do that before. It always has the simulation on it, and it isn't in Japanese usually. Just found it odd with the the threat of solar activity and the website was down.
Dear Mr. Pablo Olivares,
Support of our super computer finished in the end of February.
The simulation stopped between 9 March and 20 March because of our system trouble.
The realtime simulation will really stop in the end of March or in April.
Sorry for this.

This one could get nasty. It is one of the biggest in years. We will have to keep a eye on this one.
BIG SUNSPOT: One of the largest sunspot groups in years rotated over the sun's northeastern limb this weekend. With a least four dark cores larger than Earth, AR1476 sprawls more than 100,000 km from end to end, and makes an easy target for backyard solar telescopes.

How they get this image on the 6th?
