Faint, asymmetric halo CME combined with CH HSS to hit Earth's magnetic field on July 21

Although solar activity was at low levels on July 17, 2016, geoeffective Active Region 2567 ('beta-gamma') managed to produce a long duration C1 solar flare. The event peaked at 06:42 UTC, producing a faint, asymmetric halo Coronal Mass Ejection (CME)....

Glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field expected late on March 25

Active region 2014 (S14E20, Dsc/beta-gamma) produced a long duration C5 solar flare on March 23, 2014 at 03:48 UTC. This flare lasted several hours and thus produced energy equivalent to much stronger flares. A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) associated with this event

Long duration C2 solar flare erupted from Region 1690

A long duration C-class solar flare erupted from Region 1690 on March 12, 2013. The event started at 10:17, peaked ad 11:06 as C2.0 flare and ended at 12:25 UTC. A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was produced. Region 1690 still has Alpha magnetic configuration, but its
