Title: Ludendorff Coronal Flattening Index of the Total Solar Eclipse on March 9, 2016
Author: Tiar Dani, Rhorom Priyatikanto, Abdul Rachman

Ludendorff coronal flattening index of the Total Solar Eclipse (TSE) on March 9, 2016, was calculated at various distances in solar radius. As a result, we obtained the coronal flattening index (=a+b) at a distance of 2 solar radii is 0.16. The 24th solar cycle phase based on the 2016 TSE event obtained -0.64 which showed the corona is pre-minimum type. Resulted coronal flattening index value gives a predicted maximum amplitude of the monthly sunspot number (W_max) for the 25th solar cycle to be 7065. Therefore, the solar activity for 25th solar cycle predicted to be lower than the current solar cycle, which has a maximum sunspot number value of 146 in February 2014
