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

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...

Strong geomagnetic storms in progress

A G3 - Strong geomagnetic storm conditions were observed beginning 05:59 UTC on May 8, 2016. G2 - Moderate to G3 - Strong geomagnetic storm conditions are expected through the rest of the day and possibly into May 9 and 10. This activity is caused by a recurrent,...

CME hits Earth, G3 Strong geomagnetic storming expected

The December 28th coronal mass ejection (CME) produced by the long duration M1.8 solar flare passed the ACE spacecraft at 00:02 UTC on December 31 and reached our planet at 00:51 UTC. Geomagnetic K-index of 4 threshold was reached at 01:05 UTC. The impact is...

CME impact: Geomagnetic storm reaching G3 Strong levels in progress

Geomagnetic storm reaching G3 Strong levels is currently in progress as a result of Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) impact on top of Coronal Hole High Speed Stream (CH HSS) influence.The CME, produced by September 18th C-class solar flare, reached our planet at 06:05 UTC on

Geomagnetic storming continues: G3 Strong levels reached on September 11

​Our planet's magnetic shield is again under stress today with brief G3 Strong geomagnetic storm levels reached around 09:00 UTC. The storms began on September 7 with positive polarity coronal hole reaching geoeffective position and an impact of plasma filament

Geomagnetic storm reaching G3 (Strong) levels in progress, extreme conditions possible

During the last 24 hours, solar wind parameters, measured by the ACE spacecraft, were indicative of background solar wind conditions until 07:45 UTC on August 15, when a sudden impulse occurred due to the arrival of a co-rotating interaction region (CIR) ahead of a

Three Earth-directed CMEs trigger G3-Strong Geomagnetic Storm Watch

Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) from June 18, 19 and 21 have significantly increased chances for G3-Strong geomagnetic storms on June 22, 2015. Two of the three CMEs were produced by Region 2371, one of the biggest regions of the current solar cycle, which is currently di

Two CMEs heading toward Earth, severe geomagnetic storms expected

There are currently two Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) heading toward our planet and their combined arrival is expected to spark severe geomagnetic storms.The first one, released by the long duration M4.5 solar flare on September 9, is expected to hit Earth's magneti
