Solar Update / Flare Watch
Good morning. Below is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Sunday. Solar activity during the past 24 hours was high. Big sunspot 2192 produced a long duration X1.1 solar flare peaking at 05:03 UTC. Coronagraph imagery is now complete and shows that the flare itself was all bark and no bite. A noteworthy coronal mass ejection (CME) is not associated with the event. The active region continues to move into a better geoeffective position and will remain a threat for additional moderate to strong solar flares. All other visible regions, including newly numbered region 2193 remain stable. Stay tuned to SOlarHam.com where you will get the most up to date spaceweather news and information.

Despite the long duration nature and brightness of this event, a noteworthy coronal mass ejection (CME) was not associated with the event. The active cluster of sunspots is not yet in a good position for Earth directed eruptions, but that will change during the next several days. Click HERE for the latest event log.
