Long duration M1.2 solar flare erupted from Region 1861

A long duration solar flare measuring M1.2 erupted at 15:41 UTC on October 17, 2013. The responsible region is "beta-gamma" classified AR 1861 located near the west limb. If CME was generated it would be directed mostly away from

Sunspot 1865 produced an impulsive M1.3 flare

Sunspot 1865 produced an impulsive M1.3 solar flare at 23:36 UTC on October 15, 2013. Due to the location of this region, solar plasma could be Earth-directed. This same sunspot already produced M 1.1 flare earlier in the day. Sunspot 1865 has a

Sunspot 1865 produced an M1.1 flare - possible Earth-directed CME

In last 24 hours solar activity has been at moderate levels with many C-class flares detected from sunspots 1865, 1861 and from new approaching region behind the east limb. Active Region 1865 produced an M1.1 flare at 09:00 UTC. There are clear dimming

Moderate M1.7 solar flare erupted from geoeffective AR 1865

A moderate solar flare measuring M1.7 erupted on Sunday, October 13, 2013. The event peaked at 00:43 UTC and a Type II Radio Emission was associated. Type II emissions occur in association with eruptions on the Sun and typically indicate a Coronal Mass Ejection is

Moderate M2.8 solar flare erupted from southeastern limb

New active region, AR1865, located on the southeastern limb of the Sun erupted on October 9, 2013 peaking at 01:48 UTC as moderate M2.8 solar flare. Strong Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was generated but it was not Earth directed. This region

Large prominence eruption off the northeast limb

A large prominence located off the northeast limb erupted early on Tuesday, October 8, 2013. A non-Earth directed Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was associated with the event.There are currently 6 numbered sunspot regions on the disk.1855 - Beta1856 - Beta1857 - Alpha1860

Long duration C1 solar flare erupted with Earth directed CME

A long duration C1 solar flare erupted on October 6, 2013 at 14:24 UTC. Coronal Mass Ejection associated with this event is Earth directed. Plasma cloud is forecast to sweep past our planet sometime on October 9 resulting in minor increase in geomagnetic

Large magnetic filament erupted during the late hours of September 29

A large magnetic filament erupted on Sun's northern hemisphere during the late hours (UTC) of September 29, 2013. The explosion hurled a magnificent Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) into space and it does look like it has an Earth-directed component.

Sungrazing comet and farside full-halo CME

An icy comet with estimated size of few tens of meters plunged into the Sun on August 19/20, 2013 but just before it dissipated, a far-side region on the Sun expelled a magnificent full-halo CME. Today's comet belonged to Kreutz Sungrazer family which

Large filament eruption to deliver a glancing blow early Friday

A large solar filament located in the southern hemisphere lifted off the Sun at about 8:50 UTC on August 20, 2013. A bright Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was produced as the result. Though the majority of Sun's material is directed south current

Impulsive solar flare measuring M3.3 erupted from Region 1818 - CME produced

An impulsive solar flare reaching M3.3 erupted on August 17, 2013. The event peaked at 18:24 UTC from Active Region 1818. AR 1818 is classified with Beta-Gamma-Delta magnetic configuration and is capable of producing even stronger eruptions.  At 18:49

Magnetic pole reversal of the Sun 3 - 4 months away

As it does approximately every 11 years on a solar cycle, the Sun's magnetic field is now reversing. Measurements have confirmed that we are about 3 - 4 months away from complete magnetic field reversal when Sun's inner magnetic dynamo will re-organize itself.
