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

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

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

Sunspot 1513 released M2.4 solar flare

Solar activity is now at moderate levels with a short duration M2.4 Solar Flare around Sunspot 1513 located in the northeast quadrant on June 28. This region continues to show signs of growth. No Earth-directed coronal mass ejections was released. There is R1 Radio

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

NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope detected the highest-energy light ever associated with an eruption on the Sun

Solar eruptions are on the rise as the Sun progresses toward the peak of its roughly 11-year-long activity cycle, now expected in mid-2013. Sun produced powerful solar flare rated as X5.4  (based on the peak intensity of its X-rays) on March 7, 2012. During a
