New sunspot emerging from the southeastern limb, numbered as AR 1882, announced itself with moderate M 2.9 flare at 03:02 UTC on October 25, 2013. The event started at 02:55 UTC, peaked at 03:02 UTC and ended at 03:17 UTC.

A Type II and IV radio emissions were associated with the event, indicating strong CME and solar radiation storm.

 

ALERT: Type II Radio Emission

Begin Time: 2013 Oct 25 0259 UTC

Estimated Velocity: 711 km/s 

Description: Type II emissions occur in association with eruptions on the sun and typically indicate a coronal mass ejection is associated with a flare event.

ALERT: Type IV Radio Emission

Begin Time: 2013 Oct 25 0259 UTC  

Description: Type IV emissions occur in association with major eruptions on the sun and are typically associated with strong coronal mass ejections and solar radiation storms.

New sunspot emerged from southeastern limb and will cross visible solar disk in the days ahead so more flaring activity like this one could pose threat to our planet when it makes more geoeffective position – HMI Intensitigram/AIA 094 (Courtesy of NASA/SDO and the AIA, EVE, and HMI science teams)
