C1 solar flare and CME, glancing blow possible

A C1.2 solar flare took place today at 07:21 UTC and came from a sunspot region on the Sun's northern hemisphere. Sunspot region 2787 was to blame. While the solar flare wasn't that strong, it was eruptive and that's what counts! Associated with the solar flare were a coronal wave and coronal dimming.

M4.44 solar flare

M4.44 solar flare

Solar activity reached moderate levels today as an M4.44 solar flare (R1-minor) peaked at 13:11 UTC. The solar flare took place at S23E98 as seen from Earth which means the event originated 8 degrees behind the south-east limb. We can conclude that the X-ray flux likely reached more than M4.4. This is the second M-class solar flare of the current solar cycle and the strongest solar flare of this cycle thus far.

Sunspot region 2785 and 2786

Two new sunspot regions have rotated into view on the south-east limb. These sunspot regions have received sunspot number 2785 and 2786. These sunspot regions were the source of a couple of far side eruptions over the past week and they looked very active while on the far side.

Solar activity on the rise

Solar activity on the rise

Solar Cycle 25 is underway. That shouldn't be news to you right? It was back in September that the NOAA SWPC came out with an official press release that Solar Cycle 25 started December last year. However, our Sun has been relatively quiet during the first few months of the new solar cycle. We had one M-class solar flare back in May and some smaller sunspot regions popping up every now and then but other than that things have been fairly quiet. Nothing out of the ordinary as our Sun slowly starts to ramp up towards solar maximum which should take place in 2025.

Coronal hole faces Earth

Coronal hole faces Earth

The NOAA SWPC has issued a minor geomagnetic storm (G1) watch for this Thursday (22 October) as a high speed solar wind stream from the northern polar coronal hole is expected to arrive at Earth. This is the same coronal hole which caused multiple days with geomagnetic storm conditions (G1-G2) last month and produced solar wind speeds around 650km/s at our planet.

Solar Cycle 25 has officially started in December 2019

Breaking news today from the Solar Cycle 25 Prediction Panel! It is now official, the solar minimum between Solar Cycle 24 and 25 took place December 2019 when the 13-month smoothed sunspot number fell to 1.8. This means that we've been in Solar Cycle 25 since December 2019!

Coronal hole faces Earth

Coronal hole faces Earth

A coronal hole is facing our planet today. While this coronal hole is poorly defined in the sense that there is not one large opening, we do see several openings (dark areas) which combined cover a significant portion of the Sun's northern hemisphere. We even see an opening near the equator that has already passed the central meridian.

C2 solar flare, SC25 slowly ramping up?

C2 solar flare, SC25 slowly ramping up?

A C2.0 solar flare took place this morning at 06:47 UTC from a plage region (a region without sunspots) near the west limb. A small coronal mass ejection was ejected into space but it is not aimed towards Earth. This event was kind of a wake up call as there has been little space weather activity worth talking about in the past few weeks...
