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.

Moderately Strong Solar Flare (M8.2)
Suddenly productive sunspot 2290, now located behind the west limb, generated a moderately strong M8.2 solar flare peaking at 01:35 UTC (Mar 3). Because the blast took place from just beyond the west limb, it should have no major impact on our planet. Perhaps we will see 2290 again in 2 weeks?

March 2, 2015 @ 16:05 UTC
M3.7 Solar Flare and CME (UPDATED)
Sunspot 2290 continues to say bye on Monday with an M3.7 eruption detected at 15:28 UTC. Attached image courtesy of the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) using the 304 angstroms channel captures the nice looking eruption off the west limb.

UPDATE: The event generated a coronal mass ejection (CME) that was directed away from our planet. Click HERE for a movie.

Solar Update
Below is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Monday. Solar activity during the past 24 hours was moderate. Region 2290, now located behind the west limb, produced a pair of low level M-Flares, along with several minor C-Flares. The active region will continue to turn further onto the farside of the sun and should have little to no influence on our planet. Elsewhere, region 2292 grew during the past day and will continue to be monitored. Region 2293 decayed somewhat and is not considered a high threat for noteworthy solar flares. A number of coronal mass ejections were detected during the past day and each appear to have originated from the farside of the sun.

Periods of minor (G1) geomagnetic storming continued at high latitudes. Solar wind speeds remain elevated above 600 km/s. Geomagnetic conditions should gradually decline during the next 48 hours. Sky watchers, especially around the Arctic Circle should remain alert for visible aurora displays.

Sunspot 2290 Saying GoodBye
Solar activity increased to moderate levels on Monday morning with a pair of low level M-Flares detected around departing region 2290 off the northwest limb. The first was an M1.0 at 06:39 UTC. The second was an M1.1 at 09:48 UTC. Unfortunately due to the location off the limb, any future flaring around this region will be directed away from our planet. Image by SDO.

Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2015 March 03 1230 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was at moderate levels. Region 2290 (N22, L=63)
produced three M-class flares during the period, including an impulsive
M8 (R2-Moderate) flare at 03/0135 UTC, a M4 (R1-Minor) flare at 02/1930
UTC, and a M3 (R1-Minor) flare at 02/1528 UTC. In addition to the R1 and
R2 events, Region 2290 produced several low and mid-level C-class flares
during the period. Type II (est speed 750 km/s) and Type IV radio sweeps
were observed in association with the the M8 flare. Although a coronal
mass ejection (CME) occurred with each of the M-class flares, due to the
source location beyond the west limb, none of these CMEs are likely to
be geoeffective. No other CMEs appeared to be Earth-directed.

.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to be low with a slight chance for M-class
(R1-R2/Minor-Moderate) flare activity on day one (03 Mar) as Region 2290
exits the northwestern limb.  Solar activity is likely to be low on
days two and three (04-05 Mar).
