Sunspot 1513 unleashed second M-class solar flare - waves of ionization over Europe

Another M-class solar flare was released from Sunspot 1513 on Friday morning, the same sunspot that produced yesterdays M2.4 solar flare. The latest event measured moderate M2.2 and took place at 09:20 UTC Friday morning, June 29, 2012.Sunspots 1512 and 1513 have

Double CME targets Earth

A fast-moving CME that left the Sun on June 14th is expected to scoop up another CME already en route and deliver a double-blow to Earth's magnetic field on June 16th. Weak-to-moderate geomagnetic storms are possible when the clouds arrive.A long duration solar

Another long duration solar flare erupted from Sunspot 1504 - M1.9

Another long duration, moderate, M1.9 solar flare  erupted from Sunspot 1504 on June 14, 2012. A 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) was recorded measuring 1400sfu and lasted for 103 minutes. The plasma cloud generated looks to be Earth directed and may impact Earth by
