Solar Activity Picks Up!

Solar Cycle 25 is really starting to come alive! At this point, the cycle has exceeded predictions and is more active than was predicted. March 2022 marked by far the most active month we have seen so far in this solar cycle with almost 150 flares recorded. XRT caught many of these flares during this period, including some high energy ones. The above images show what the many active regions on disk looked like from XRT.
