M-class solar flares from a new sunspot region

A new sunspot region currently on the north-east limb is really making itself known today. We have had a flurry of C-class solar flares from this new region today and it even managed to produce not one, but two M-class solar flares!

M1.6 solar flare, G2 storm watch

zondag 10 oktober 2021 - 15:17 UTC

M1.6 solar flare, G2 storm watch

An M1.6 solar flare peaked yesterday at 06:38 UTC. Source of the eruption was sunspot region 2882 which was in an earth-facing position at the time. Type II and IV radio sweeps were observed which suggested straight away that the event should be eruptive and thus launch a coronal mass ejection towards Earth. When coronagraph imagery became available, it became quickly obvious that the solar flare indeed launched a coronal mass ejection towards our planet.

C1 solar flare, earth-directed CME

A Type II radio emission was observed today at 06:20 UTC. It came from an amazing looking eruption around sunspot region 2871. While the eruption only peaked at C1.6, it was a long duration event which disturbed a large part of the corona.

Coronal hole faces Earth

A southern hemisphere coronal hole is currently facing our planet. The coronal hole stretches all the way to the solar equator and is sending a stream of high speed solar wind towards our planet.

M4.7 solar flare, G1 storm

We have had a quiet summer when it comes to space weather but our Sun is starting to kick into a higher gear right as autumn approaches for us on the northern hemisphere.

C3.0 solar flare with earth-directed CME

Sunspot region 2859 produced a long duration C3.0 solar flare yesterday which launched a coronal mass ejection into space. The plasma cloud has a good chance to impact our planet in a few days time.

First X-class solar flare of Solar Cycle 25

zaterdag 03 juli 2021 - 15:03 UTC

First X-class solar flare of Solar Cycle 25

An X-class solar flare (R3-moderate) has just peaked! The maximum measured X-ray flux was X1.59 to be precise and the solar flare peaked at 14:29 UTC. Sunspot region 2838 is the source of this eruption. The solar flare seems fairly impulsive and due to the location of the sunspot region, any ejecta is unlikely to be earth-directed.

M flares, G2 geomagnetic storm watch

M flares, G2 geomagnetic storm watch

Our Sun has been moderately active the past few days! Sunspot region 2824 produced numerous C-class events and three M-class solar flares during the past few days. An M1.4 solar flare on Saturday, 22 May was the strongest solar flare it produced. A couple of these C and M-class solar flares were eruptive and produced coronal mass ejections which could have an earth-directed component.

C3 solar flare with earth-directed CME

Sunspot region 2816 produced a long duration C3.9 solar flare which was associated with both Type II and IV radio sweeps. The solar flare peaked at 04:35 UTC and launched a coronal mass ejection into space.
