M1.5 solar flare erupts from departing region 3112
An M1.5 solar flare erupted from Active Region 3112 at 00:19 UTC on October 13, 2022. AR 3112 is the source of several M-class solar flares over the past couple of days, including an impulsive M3.9 on October 11.
This region underwent decay over the past 24 hours but still managed to produce several C-class flares and the abovementioned M1.5.
Type II and IV radio emissions, suggesting a CME was produced during the M1.5 event, were not registered.
The region is about to start its farside rotation.
Solar activity is expected to be at low levels through October 15, with a chance for M-class flares.
The geomagnetic field is expected to remain quiet on October 13 and 14. Quiet to unsettled conditions are expected on October 15 as the result of a small negative polarity CH HSS.
