Quick update

The Solar wind has just broken 400 km/s for I think the first time since we launched 1J. Perhaps, maybe, if we're very lucky the sun is waking up!

The "evil twins" sunspot is also crackling with C and M class flares. Now it just needs to hold off until it moves around to the western limb and can be geo-effective.
