Series of CMEs impact Earth, sparking G3 – Strong geomagnetic storming

Series of CMEs impact Earth, sparking G3 – Strong geomagnetic storming

A coronal mass ejection (CME) produced by the long-duration M1.7 solar flare1 at 03:01 UTC on November 2, 2021, reached Earth at 19:57 UTC on November 3, sparking G3 – Strong geomagnetic storming. The CME overtook and merged with at least one, possibly two or more,…

CME impacts Earth, sparking G3 – Strong geomagnetic storm

A coronal mass ejection (CME) produced by a filament eruption around 10:00 UTC on May 9, 2021, has reached Earth at 06:43 UTC on May 12. G3 – Moderate geomagnetic storm levels were observed at 12:59 UTC. The CME arrived at the DSCOVR spacecraft at 05:47 UTC. Solar…

5 Earth-directed CMEs, G3 – Strong geomagnetic storm

5 Earth-directed CMEs, G3 – Strong geomagnetic storm

A several degree long solar filament south of the Region 2741 disappeared by approximately 15:14 UTC on May 13, 2019. Initial analysis suggests an Earth-directed component is likely with this Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). This is the fifth Earth-directed CME since…

G3 – Strong geomagnetic storm levels reached

G3 – Strong geomagnetic storm levels reached

A recurrent, polar-connected, positive-polarity coronal hole is affecting our planet since September 27. G1 – Minor geomagnetic storm levels were reached at 08:48 UTC on September 27, followed by G2 – Moderate levels at 20:24 UTC and then increased to G3 – Strong…

Direct CME hit expected, G3 Strong geomagnetic storm watch issued

Direct CME hit expected, G3 Strong geomagnetic storm watch issued

An asymmetric full halo Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) produced by the M5.5 solar flare at 20:33 UTC on September 4, 2017 is traveling toward Earth and is expected to arrive late on September 6. G3 – Strong geomagnetic storm watch is in effect for September 6 and 7….

CME impact sparks G3 – Strong geomagnetic storm

A coronal mass ejection (CME) produced during the early UTC hours of May 23, 2017 hit Earth's magnetic field at 15:36 UTC on May 27, more than 24 hours after it was expected. Although the solar wind speed is relatively slow, the embedded magnetic field had a…

Recurrent CH HSS causing geomagnetic storms

Recurrent CH HSS causing geomagnetic storms

A recurrent, negative polarity coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) has hit Earth's magnetic field causing geomagnetic storms on June 5, 2016. A G2 (Moderate) geomagnetic storm watch is currently in effect. This same CH HSS has affected Earth on May 8 with…
