Increased Solar Activity- X1.6 Flare


Solar activity is once again at high levels. Region 2205 produced a strong X1.6 solar flare peaking at 17:26 UTC Friday. The event was associated with a Type II radio emission with an estimated velocity of 602 km/s. A short lived R2 radio black occurred on the sunlit side of Earth. More details regarding a possible CME later today. Click HERE for an updated event log.

Solar Update / Increased Activity
Good evening. Solar activity continues at moderate to high levels with a number of M-Flares detected around region 2205. The latest events include an M2.5 flare at 22:16 UTC (Nov 6), an M2.7 at 02:49 UTC (Nov 7) and and M2.0 at 04:25 UTC (Nov 7). Due to the location of region 2205, all coronal mass ejections up until this point have been directed away from Earth. This could change in the days ahead as the active region continues to turn into a more geoeffective positon. It should be noted that another potential active region is approaching the southeast limb. Perhaps something to keep an eye on in the days ahead. Stay tuned to for the latest information.
