Long duration C2 solar flare erupted from Region 1690

A long duration C-class solar flare erupted from Region 1690 on March 12, 2013. The event started at 10:17, peaked ad 11:06 as C2.0 flare and ended at 12:25 UTC. A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was produced. Region 1690 still has Alpha magnetic configuration, but its

Impulsive M1.2 solar flare erupted from Region 1686

An impulsive M-class solar flare measuring M1.2 erupted from Region 1686 on March 5, 2013. The event started at 07:47, peaked at 07:54 and ended at 07:59 UTC. A Type II Radio Emission was associated. Type II emissions occur in association with eruptions on the Sun

Full-halo Coronal Mass Ejection on farside of the Sun

Region 1678 erupted with massive, full-halo, Coronal Mass Ejection around 04:00 UTC on March 5, 2013. The CME will have no effect on Earth as Region 1678 is on farside of the Sun. This old and active region is about to rotate onto the eastern limb by this

Huge solar prominence erupted off the southwestern limb - non Earth directed CME

A huge magnetic filament erupted off the Sun's southwestern limb during the early hours of February 27, 2013. Most of the plasma looks to be headed away from the Earth though. On the Earth side of the Sun, Active Region 1682 developed a 'beta-gamma'

Fast-growing Sunspot 1678 poses threat for M-class and X-class solar flares

Sun erupted slow-moving Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) on February 19, 2013. Goddard Space Flight Center reported that the bulk of the plasma cloud was directed to the north of Earth. Still, we can expect a glancing blow around February 22, 2013. Minor to moderate

Sunspot 1675 generated impulsive M1.9 solar flare

An impulsive solar flare measuring M1.9 erupted from Region 1675 on February 17, 2013. The event started at 15:45, peaked at 15:50 UTC and ended at 15:52 UTC. A 10cm Radio Burst was recorded from 15:47 - 15:51 UTC.Space Weather Message Code: SUM10RSerial Number:

Sunspot 1667 generated strong C8.7 solar flare and possible Earth-directed CME

A solar flare registered as C8.7 was detected at 00:21 UTC on February 6, 2013. The source of the flare was decaying Active Region 1667. According to images from NASA's STEREO-B spacecraft, the associated CME appears to be heading in the Earth direction, with expected

"Dragon Tail" - Huge filament eruption - January 31, 2013

A large filament stretching hundreds of thousands of kilometers erupted on Thursday, January 31, 2013. The eruption lasted about 4 hours and was located in the northeast quadrant of the Sun.The following SDO video shows a variety of views of the break-up of this

Ring-shaped prominence and Earth directed CME erupts from Sun - January 31, 2013

An Earth-directed Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) on January 31, 2013 (07:09 UTC) was accompanied by a large prominence eruption best visible in light with a wavelength of 304 angstroms. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured this footage from 10 p.m. EST (03:00 UTC)

Solar prominences on January 23, 2013

Solar activity remained at low levels for the past 24 hours. However, there were two large prominence eruptions on January 23, 2013. First large prominence erupted from the southern limb in early hours, producing south-directed  CME cloud, away from Earth. It was

Sunspot 1654 still dominates the visible solar disk

Active Region 1654 has traveled half across the Earth facing side of the Sun and now is squarely facing Earth. On January 13, this huge sunspot reached its maximum size measured as more than 193 000 km (120, 000 miles) wide long or 15 Earth diameters) from end to

Moderate to high solar activity with possible geomagnetic disturbances

Solar activity has been at moderate to high levels for the past 24 hours. AR1652 produced two M-class and 8 C-class solar flares  in the past 24 hours, and it has rapidly evolved to a compact beta-gamma-delta configuration. This active region erupted M1.0 flare

Moderate solar flare reaching M1.7 erupted from AR 1652

A second moderate solar flare erupted on January 13, 2013 from AR 1652. M1.7 solar flare peaked at 08:38 UTC. The event started at 08:35, peaked at 08:38 and ended at 08:40 UTC. Type II and IV radio emissions were associated with the event. Type II emissions occur

Active Region 1652 produced M1.0 solar flare

Beta-gamma-delta Active Region 1652 generated M1.0 solar flare at 00:50 UTC on January 13, 2013. Considering the position of Sunspot 1652, which is facing Earth, geoeffective CME is possible. Active Region 1652 (Credit: SDO/The Watchers)  There are

Second M-class solar flare of the day - M1.0 erupted from AR 1654

Active Region 1654 erupted with second M-class solar flare of the day. On January 11, 2013 at 15:07 UTC a moderate solar flare measuring M1.0 was recorded. This latest event started at 14:51, peaked at 15:07 and ended at 15:24 UTC. Earlier today we had
