I am trying to get the Sunspot numbers from https://services.swpc.noaa.gov/json/sunspot_report.json .

Can anyone look at this JSON and tell me what is the sun spot number. Here is the latest JSON:

{"time_tag": "2021-01-19T16:07:00",

"Obsdate": "2021-01-19T00:00:00",

"Obstime": "1607",

"Station": 72269,

"Observatory": "HOL",

"Type": "spt",

"Quality": 2,

"Region": 2797,

"Latitude": -17,

"Report_Longitude": 60,

"Longitude": 55,

"Report_Location": "S17E60",

"Location": "S17E55",

"Carlon": 334,

"Extent": 12,

"Area": 140,

"Numspot": 5,

"Zurich": 3,

"Penumbra": 5,

"Compact": 2,

"Spotclass": "Cko",

"Magcode": 2,

"Magclass": "B",

"Obsid": 2,

"Report_Status": 2,

"ValidSpotClass": 1


You would think the array indices for Numspot would be the count but it does not match the current number of 13. Maybe it is a combination of other numbers. If any one knows please advise.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
