Geomagnetic storming in progress, M3.0 solar flare from western limb

Geomagnetic storming in progress, M3.0 solar flare from western limb

As forecasted yesterday Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) hit Earth's magnetic field around 03:00 UTC today. That's a second CME impact within 24 hours, and another round of auroras. 

SWPC issued Geomagnetic K-index of 6 (G2 – Moderate) alert at 05:28

Geomagnetic storming sparked by coronal hole high speed stream in progress

Geomagnetic storming sparked by coronal hole high speed stream in progress

Earth is now under the influence of a stronger than expected coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS). G2 (Moderate) geomagnetic storming has been observed and continued low-level storming is possible over the next 24 hours as Earth remains under the influence of

Sunday's CME sparked moderate (G2) geomagnetic storming

Sunday's CME sparked moderate (G2) geomagnetic storming

A G2 geomagnetic storm is now in progress following CME impact on Earth's magnetic field early on October 2, 2013. The ACE spacecraft detected a solar wind increase to above 600 km/s and the Bz component (IMF) initially tipped sharply south to -19nT.

Long duration M 1.2 solar flare erupted on March 15, 2013 and launched a Full-Halo Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) toward Earth. It hit Earth’s magnetic field at 06:01 UTC on March 17, 2013 and Geomagnetic K-index of 6 reached threshold on March 17, 2013 at 08:42
