Two new M-class flares and geomagnetic storming in progress

One of the largest Sunspots of the current cycle is rotating into position for Earth directed Solar Flares. Sunspot 1520 has a Beta-Gamma-Delta magnetic configuration and may produce an X-Class flare. M1.1 flare at 05:10 UTC was followed up with a M2.0 flare at 06:27

Strong solar flare reaching M6.9 took place at 16:32 UTC

Notorious Sunspot 1515 produced yet another strong M-class solar flare. This event started at 16:23 UTC on July 8, 2012, peaked 16:32 UTC at M6.9 and ended at 16:42 UTC. Sunspot 1515 is about to rotate to western limb so huge CME it has produced was not Earth

Welcome to active solar July! X-flare, geomagnetic storming, new sunspots

As expected, a giant sunspot AR1515 unleashed a strong X1.1 solar flare on July 6th at 23:08 UTC. This event triggered a 10cm Radio Burst and a Type IV Sweep Frequency Event. Preliminary analysis indicates the Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) associated with this event is

Major solar flare reaching X1.1 peaked at 23:08 UTC

As we got used to M-class and waited a day to pass to report an overview of July 6, 2012 a major solar flare peaked. At 23:08 a major solar flare reaching X1.1 peaked. The flare was centered around Sunspot 1515.Strong R3 radio blackout was reported.Potential

Strong solar activity continues - Minor geomagnetic storm possible

Another excitement day is over. Sunspot 1515 was very active today. It produced ten M-class solar flares backed up by ten more C-class flares.20gev_20120705_01052012/07/05 01:05:0001:15:0001:10:00M2.4S17W27 ( 1515 )21gev_20120705_02012012/07/05

Sun ain't giving us a rest - after series of M-class events an M6.1 peaked at 11:44 UTC

The Sun keeps producing M-class flares for second day in a row. We are now bound to get used to M-class same as we did with C-class. Yesterday we saw 5 strong M-class flares - today we reached that number before 8:00 UTC. The day is still not over and we have

Two more M-class events from Sunspot 1515 - M2.4 and M 2.2

After fifth moderate solar flare on July 4th, reaching M4.6, increased solar activity continues. Very active region 1515 produced two more M-class solar flares. At 01:10 UTC it generated M2.4 solar flare and only hour later, at 02:42 it generated M2.3 solar

Solar activity increased to high levels - July 4, 2012 summary

Lot's of solar flares today... and just when you think it's over a moderate solar flare reaching M4.6 peaks at 22:09 UTC. That was fifth M-class solar flare for the day.  The source of this latest eruption was Region 1514.Moderate to Strong solar flares are now

Another strong M-class solar flare again - M5.3 from Region 1515 + M2.3

It does not seem to stop. Region 1515 just produced another solar flare measuring M5.3. The event started 9:47, peaked 9:55 at M5.3 and ended 9:57 UTC on July 4, 2012.Potential Impacts: Area of impact centered primarily on sub-solar point on the sunlit side of

Restless Region 1515 just produced an M-class solar flare again

After series of C-class flares, for last couple of hours, Region 1515 just produced another M-class solar flare. On July 4, 2012 an M2 solar flare peaked at 04:37 UTC. The event started at 04:37 and ended at 04:45 UTC.A Type IV radio emission was measuered.Type IV

Moderate to high solar activity for beginning of July

Sprawling Sunspot Cluster 1515 is now directly facing the Earth. This region is responsible for generating at least 5 M-Class solar flares within the past few days, including M5.6 and M3.8 events on Monday. So far on Tuesday, numerous C-Class flares have been detected

Increased solar activity - Third M-class solar flare from Sunspot 1515

Solar Activity continues at moderate to high levels. A minor C6 solar flare around Sunspot 1513 was followed up with yet another M-Class flare around Sunspot 1515. The latest blast peaked at M2.0 and the time of the event was 23:56 UTC.This large Sunspot cluster

Solar flare reaching M5.6 took place at 10:52 UTC

An M-class solar flare reaching M5.6 peaked at 10:52 UTC on July 2, 2012 from Region 1515. An R2 Moderate radio blackout was reported. This event generated a 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) along with a Type II Sweep Frequency Event. This region is in a great location for

M2.8 solar flare peaked at 19:18 UTC

Region 1513 (N16E03) produced an M2.8 solar flare on July 01, 2012 at 19:18 UTC.Region 1513 did not show any significant growth or decay during the period of June 31 - July 1. Region 1515 (S17E17) continued to grow in areal coverage and is now 850 millionths.

A moderate M1.6 solar flare around Sunspot 1513

Sunspot AR1513 is crackling with impulsive M-class solar flares. A moderate solar flare reaching M1.6 took place at 18:32 UTC Saturday afternoon. The flare was centered around Sunspot 1513. This is second M-class solar flare today.The geomagnetic field is

Sunspot 1513 generated M1.0 solar flare

Sunspot 1513 produced a quick M1.0 solar flare at 12:52 UTC on June 30. Sunspots 1513 and 1515 have Beta-Gamma magnetic configurations that harbors energy for strong solar flares. NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of continued M-flares during the next 24 hours
