Filament eruption, yet another CME

The sunspot regions that have been facing Earth the past few days are slowly disappearing but our Sun continues to launch coronal mass ejections into space. A filament eruption took place around 19 UTC yesterday evening near sunspot region 2741 and a coronal mass ejection managed to escape the Sun's gravity.

Faint partial halo coronal mass ejection

Sunspot region 2740 has been much less active as it has been decayed the past few days. But that didn't mean it went totally quiet. A minor eruption near the this sunspot region took place around midnight UTC yesterday and launched a faint partial halo coronal mass ejection that could arrive at Earth in a few days from now.

CME passage, G1 geomagnetic storm

CME passage, G1 geomagnetic storm

The minor G1 geomagnetic storm was reached earlier today at 02:20 UTC. This is caused by a coronal mass ejection passage that brings a persistent southward pointing magnetic field with it. This coronal mass ejection that we are seeing at Earth right now is likely the coronal mass ejection that we posted about on 8 May.

Sunspot region 2740, C9.9 solar flare

maandag 06 mei 2019 - 17:08 UTC

Sunspot region 2740, C9.9 solar flare

Almost an M-class solar flare! Sunspot region 2740 (Beta-Delta) produced a very impulsive C-class solar flare this morning at 05:10 UTC. The solar flare peaked at an X-ray flux of C9.97 which is just shy of the M-class threshold. The eruption was associated with an Type II Radio Emission and several more C-class solar flares occurred as the day progressed.

Coronal hole faces Earth

Aurora season is now rapidly coming to an end for high latitude sky watchers in the northern hemisphere but the night skies for our friends in the southern hemisphere are only getting darker and darker. Good news for you as we have a coronal hole facing our planet today which is sending a high speed solar wind stream towards our planet.

Coronal hole faces Earth

Space weather has been very quiet lately with not much interesting to report on. There haven't been any sunspot regions or solar eruptions worth mentioning and also here on Earth we've been having quiet geomagnetic conditions. This could however change in the near future as we have a southern hemisphere coronal hole facing our planet today. Those of you who follow us on Twitter or have the SpaceWeatherLive iOS/Android app have likely seen the automated coronal hole detection alert.
