X1.1 solar flare erupts from the Sun’s SE limb

A major solar flare measuring X1.1 erupted from a region located at the Sun’s southeastern limb at 13:25 UTC on May 3, 2022. The event started at 13:09 UTC and ended at 13:31.

Major X1.1 solar flare erupts from Active Region 2994

Major X1.1 solar flare erupts from Active Region 2994

A major solar flare measuring X1.1 at its peak erupted from newly numbered Active Region 2994 at 03:34 UTC on April 17, 2022. The event started at 03:17 UTC and ended at 03:51. A coronal mass ejection (CME) was produced during the event but the location of the source region does not favor Earth-directed CMEs. This will change in the days ahead as the region turns into geoeffective position.

Major X1.3 solar flare erupts from Active Region 2975

Major X1.3 solar flare erupts from Active Region 2975

A major solar flare measuring X1.3 erupted from Active Region 2975 at 17:37 UTC on March 30, 2022. The event started at 17:21 UTC and ended at 17:46. The region is located in an area that favors Earth-directed coronal mass ejections (CMEs). A Type II Radio Emission…

Two CMEs heading toward Earth, G3 – Strong geomagnetic storm watch in effect

Two CMEs heading toward Earth, G3 – Strong geomagnetic storm watch in effect

Active Region 2975 produced multiple C- and M-class solar flares since M4.0 at 11:29 UTC on March 28, 2022, as well as 2 coronal mass ejections (CMEs) – both toward Earth. As a result, a G3 – Strong geomagnetic storm watch is in effect for March 31. Solar activity…
