Major solar flares erupting behind the northeast limb

A major solar flare was detected behind Sun's northeast limb on September 1, 2014. STEREO Behind spacecraft, watching farside of the Sun, captured what is most likely an X-class solar flare starting at 11:05 UTC.This major solar flare was associa

Subsiding geomagnetic and solar radiation storms

Geomagnetic storm sparked by a combination of CMEs from last couple of days is now subsiding. We might still see uptick today but it will most likely remain below G1 levels.At 10:57 UTC on April 20, a 24 nT geomagnetic sudden impulse (interplanet

Moderate (G2) geomagnetic storm and minor solar radiation storm in progress

As expected, an interplanetary shock wave associated with the “double CME” of June 13-14 hit Earth’s magnetic field today around 09:57 UTC.ACE Spacecraft detected an incoming shock passage around 09:00 UTC this morning and a Geomagnetic Sudden Impulse was recorded by

M5.1 solar flare generated S2 solar radiation storm

M5.1 solar flare generated S2 solar radiation storm

A strong solar flare reaching M5.1 took place at 01:47 UTC Thursday morning. The flare was centered around Sunspot 1476 near the northwest limb. A bright CME was generated but because of the spots location, the plasma cloud will be headed mostly to the west.The
