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.

This website is only online because of the kind financial support of its users and sponsors. If you would like to support the work that I do, please consider a donation if at all possible. Click HERE for more information.

Aurora Displays
An enhanced sector of solar wind containing periods of south pointing Bz was enough to generate a geomagnetic storm at high latitudes during the early hours of Friday. Beautiful aurora displays were reported across many locations, including the one below captured by Gary Kallberg in Fox, Alaska. Gary notes that he was looking due south when he photographed this display. Increased geomagnetic activity will remain possible on Friday night. Sky watchers at high latitudes should remain alert.

Solar Update / Geomagnetic Storm
Good morning. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Friday. Solar activity declined to low levels during the past 24 hours with only minor C-Class activity detected. Inactive region 2164 in the southwest quadrant is heading for the limb and will soon rotate out of view. Elsewhere, a new region rotated into view off the east limb and will be numbered 2171 later today. All other visible numbered regions are currently stable. A filament located in the southeast quadrant erupted this morning, however much of the released plasma looks to have been reabsorbed. A noteworthy CME is not likely.

A brief period of minor G1 level geomagnetic storming was observed last night following a period of southward Bz. Enhanced geomagnetic activity will remain possible today while Earth passes through an enhanced sector of solar wind.

Aurora Watch
Sky watchers at high latitudes should be alert tonight for visible aurora as the Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) has been tipped south for a long duration.

Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2014 September 19 1230 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity returned to low levels. Region 2169 (N05E47, Cao/beta)
produced the largest flare of the period, a C3 flare at 18/1730 UTC.
This region appeared stable and fairly inactive in the hours following
the C-flare. Region 2166 (N12W20, Cao/beta) also produced a few low
level C-class flares and exhibited continued signs of decay. A new area
of enhanced plage with a few spots visible just rotated on to the
visible disk. This area remains unnumbered until it rotates further onto
the disk in order to better classify its magnetic complexity. All other
regions were either stable or in decay, and all were unremarkable.

An approximately 18° long filament, centered near S22E36, was observed
lifting off the visible disk in SDO/AIA 304 imagery from 19/0709-1009
UTC. Analysis will be accomplished as data becomes available to
determine if there is any Earth-directed component of the associated
coronal mass ejection (CME).

.Forecast...
Solar activity is likely to be low with slight chance for an M-class
flare (R1-Minor)for the next three days (19-21 Sep).
