The rotation brought us 4 active regions, AR2735, AR2736, AR2737, and AR2738, and 3 spotless streaks, one of 5, one of 6, and the last one of 3 days. The highest Daily Active Region Area for the rotation was 420 millionths on March 23, while the total active region areas for the rotation was 1470 millionths. The highest Wolf number for the rotation was 49 on March 22 when two active regions were visible at the same day. A number of small reverse polarized areas were observed around the last days of March and the beginning of April. See our overview with the last updates by clicking here. Overall Solar Activity remained Very Low and the rotation increased the spotless days count since solar maximum to 427. Despite this, during the rotation the Sun produced 70 B-class and 11 C-class flares.

This time we would like to feature some images submitted by three of our observers, Raffaello Braga, Theo Ramakers with a composite of AR2735 and AR2736 , and a WL image by Jeffrey Carels.
