The rotation brought us 3 active regions, AR2738, AR2739, and AR2740, as well as 1 spotless streak of 12 days. The highest Daily Active Region Area for the rotation was 410 millionths on April 18, while the total active region areas for the rotation was 3610 millionths. The highest Wolf number for the rotation was 24 on April 24, when in addition to AR2738, AR2739 started to emerge. 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 for this rotation by clicking here. Overall Solar Activity remained Very Low and the rotation increased the spotless days count since solar maximum to 439. Despite this, the Sun produced 1 A-class, 37 B-class and 2 C-class flares during the rotation .
