Geomagnetic Storm Watch-Spaceweather remains unsettled


Solar Update / Storm Watch
Good morning. Below is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Saturday. Solar activity declined to lower levels during the past 24 hours following an M7.3 solar flare around region 2036 on Friday morning at 13:03 UTC. That event was responsible for a halo coronal mass ejection (CME) with a partially Earth directed component. An impact to our geomagnetic field will be possible beginning on Sunday. A minor geomagnetic storm watch has been issued by the NOAA / Space Weather Prediction Center. Newly numbered sunspots 2044 and 2045, now turning into view off the southeast limb, are each producing low level C-Class solar flares. Elsewhere, regions 2034, 2035, 2036, 2038 and 2040 each showed some signs of minor to moderate spot growth during the past 12 hours. All other regions are currently stable. There will remain a chance for another isolated M-Class event during the next 24 hours.Stay Tuned to for the latest information.
