Sun: Solar activity rises to a new low: Lately, the sun has been so quiet that even a minor solar flare would attract attention. On March 23rd, such a flare occurred. Sunspot AR2524 unleashed a C1-class explosion. According to NOAA scales of space weather, this raised solar activity from "very low" to "low." (spaceweather.com)
 
Stoke beat Watford easily 1 – 2. The stewarding was not good and on several occasions when the crowds (of Stoke fans) surged forward people were forced against the barrier at the bottom. Luckily there were only minor injuries. No match this weekend but there are some international friendlies.
