ABOUT SOLARHAM

SolarHam is a website all about the Sun and how it affects Earth. It is also an Amateur (Ham) Radio website.

SolarHam is routinely updated with breaking news, sometimes hours before other Space News websites. You can trust SolarHam.com for the most up to date and accurate solar information on the internet.

SolarHam.com launched on March 15, 2006. The purpose of the website is to provide real time solar news, as well as data from various sources, all located in one spot for easy navigation. Sources include,

NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC),
Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO),
Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO),
Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO),
Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE),
Large Angle and Spectrometric Coronagraph Experiment (LASCO),
as well as many others.

Solar Update / Moderate Activity
Good morning. Below is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Friday. Solar activity during the past 24 hours was moderate with two M-Flares and numerous C-Flares detected. Most of the flare activity is being observed around region 2149 (also pictured). The largest event was a moderate M3.4 event at 13:31 UTC. Another M-Flare, this time an M1.2, was observed around 2149 at 06:28 UTC. Neither event was associated with a noteworthy CME. The other sunspot of interest, region 2148, did show some signs of decay within the trailing section of the group, but will remain a threat for at least C-Class solar flares. All other regions, including sunspot 2143, are stable for now. Further flaring will remain possible as we head into the weekend with region 2149 being the largest threat.

Moderate Solar Flare
Finally a noteworthy solar flare to report. A new active region turning into view off the east limb produced a moderate M3.4 solar flare at 13:31 UTC Thursday. The sunspot is not yet in a good geoeffective position, so any eruptions at this point would likely be directed away from Earth. Image below by the Solar Dynamics Obseravatory (SDO) using the 131 angstroms channel. More updates in the days ahead.

Aurora Displays
The brief G2 Geomagnetic Storm from a few nights ago was responsible for some great aurora displays across many high latitude locations, including this beautiful display sent to us by Kevin Saurin in Sogndal, Norway. Great shot and thanks for sharing!

Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2014 August 22 1230 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was moderate. Region 2149 (N12E72, Eac/beta) produced the
largest events of the period, an impulsive M3/Sf solar flare at 21/1331
UTC and another impulsive M1/1F flare at 22/0623 UTC.  This region grew
as it rotated into view.

Region 2148 (N06E21, Dac/beta) also grew and produced a C6/Sf flare at
22/0006 UTC.  This event appeared to be associated with radio emissions
including a Type II sweep (578 km/s) at 22/0009 UTC, and a Type IV
sweeps at 22/0002 UTC.  Another Type IV sweep was reported at 22/0418
UTC.

Region 2146 (N10W00, Cso/beta) produced a C2/Sf flare at 22/1027 UTC and
Type II (465 km/s) and Type IV radio emissions.

Region 2143 (S05W44, Dac/beta) also grew, but produced no significant
activity.  The remaining regions were stable or decaying.

No Earth directed CMEs were detected in the available coronagraph
imagery, however.


.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to be low for the next three days (22-24
Aug) with an increasing chance for M-class flares, particularly from
Regions 2149.
