Sunspot Watch
A new region numbered 2494 formed quickly during the past 24 hours and already contains a couple of delta magnetic spots within the cluster. The active region has been responsible for a number of C-Class flares and depeding on development, will be an increasing threat for moderate M-Class solar flares. Region 2494 is located near center disk which means any potential eruptions during the next few days would likely be Earth directed. Stay tuned for the latest details.

Solar Update
Good evening folks. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk as we head into Thursday. Solar activity during the past 24 hours was low. A number of low level C-Flares were observed around newly assigned region 2493 in the southwest quadrant. This region, along with sunspot 2490 continued to show minor growth and will be monitored. A new sunspot is forming at middle latitude to the south of region 2491 and will likely be assigned a number by tomorrow morning. A coronal mass ejection (CME) was observed off the southwest limb and looks to be associated with farsided activity and is not Earth directed. Stay tuned to SolarHam.com for the latest data and imagery.

High Latitude Aurora
When outside in the cold weather watching the aurora, something hot in a SolarHam mug is the way to go. Photo below captured Sunday night in Alaska by our good friend Marketa Murray.

More aurora around the Arctic Circle will be posisble in the days ahead as an enhanced solar wind stream is expected to become geoeffective.

REPORTS AND FORECAST | 30 Day DSD | Data Warehouse


Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2016 February 06 0030 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was at low levels. Region 2494 (S12W04, Dai/beta-gamma)
produced the strongest flare of the period, a C3 at 05/0056 UTC. The
region exhibited penumbral growth in the trailer spots but underwent
dissipation in the intermediate and leader spots. New Region 2496
(N09E56, Axx/alpha) was numbered today. All other active regions
remained relatively simple and inactive.

Several DSFs were observed during the period. The first was a filament
centered near S05W40 that was erupted around 05/0500 UTC. A subsequent,
faint CME signature was observed in SW limb on LASCO C2 imagery starting
at 05/0624 UTC. Analysis and modeling of the CME suggests no
Earth-directed component was present.

A second DSF, centered near S01E06, was observed beginning around
05/1829 UTC. A third DSF, centered near S19W28, was observed around
05/1939 UTC. Additional coronagraph imagery is needed for further
analysis and modeling of the the events. No other Earth-directed CMEs
were observed in available coronagraph imagery.

.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to continue at low levels with a slight
chance for M-class (R1-R2, Minor-Moderate radio blackouts) over the next
three days (06-08 Feb) due to the flare potential of Region 2494.
