Major G2 geomagnetic storm conditions expected as CME sweeps past Earth

NOAA/SWPC reported passage of an interplanetary shock, recorded by ACE spacecraft. The CME-driven shock was first seen at 22:21 UTC on May 19, 2013, a bit later than forecasters had predicted. A Geomagnetic Sudden Impulse was recorded at 23:11 UTC. This

On March 12, 2013 a solar filament in the sun’s northern hemisphere erupted and launched Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). The source of the explosion was active region AR1690. A CME produced by the explosion is traveling north of the Earth line, but part of the CME

A weak interplanetary shock was registered by ACE spacecraft at 10:58 UTC on February 16, 2013. This event is not expected to bring widespread geomagnetic disturbances, however, it sparked aurora displays at very high latitudes.The Kp index is currently at 4, very

The CME from strongest solar flare in four years disrupted radio communications in southern China, according to the China Meteorological Administration.

The US space administration NASA confirmed that Monday’s solar flare was the largest in four years,
