Solar flare reaching M5.6 took place at 10:52 UTC

An M-class solar flare reaching M5.6 peaked at 10:52 UTC on July 2, 2012 from Region 1515. An R2 Moderate radio blackout was reported. This event generated a 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) along with a Type II Sweep Frequency Event. This region is in a great location for Earth directed explosions.

HF Radio: Limited blackout of HF radio communication on sunlit side, loss of radio contact for tens of minutes.

Navigation: Degradation of low-frequency navigation signals for tens of minutes.

Potential impacts: Area of impact centered on sub-solar point on the sunlit side of Earth. Extent of blackout of HF (high frequency) radio communication dependent upon current X-ray Flux intensity.

There is 55% chance for another M-class solar flare and 5% chance for an X-class solar flare.

This page will be updated when new data becomes available.
