Latest Space Weather News and Updates
February 27, 2017 @ 01:20 UTC
Geomagnetic Storm Watch
A minor (G1) geomagnetic storm watch was added for March 1st. A solar wind stream flowing from a soon to be geoeffective coronal hole is expected to contribute to a geomagnetic disturbance. Sky watchers at higher latitudes should be alert for visual aurora by the middle of this week.

February 26, 2017 @ 01:10 UTC
Solar Update / Coronal Hole
Good evening. Coronal Hole #63 continues to turn away from Earth and the solar wind stream flowing from this zone is expected to gradually diminish over the next 12-24 hours. Only a short period of minor storming was observed on February 24th as a result from this stream.

Another coronal hole (66) will move into a geoeffective position by March 1st and could lead to another geomagnetic enhancement at higher latitudes. More updates in the days ahead. Image below courtesy of SDO/AIA.

February 22, 2017 @ 21:00 UTC
Aurora Watch
Good afternoon. Below is an awesome aurora photo sent to us by Dan Ungrue. He captured the shot on February 20th from Alpine Oilfield on Alaska's north slope, 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Beautiful and thanks for sharing!

More aurora will be possible in the days ahead when a coronal hole stream is expected to become geoeffective. A minor (G1) geomagnetic storm watch will be in effect for the next 48 hours. Stay tuned to SolarHam.com for the most up to date information.

February 20, 2017 @ 20:00 UTC
New Active Region / Prominence Eruption
Good afternoon. Solar activity continues at very low levels, although there is now an increased chance for minor C-Flares and a small chance for an isolated moderate M-Flare. This thanks to the addition of newly numbered region 2638, now in view off the northeast limb. More updates to follow regarding this active region whenever necessary.

Also of interest today, a prominence eruption just behind the northeast limb. The towering stream of plasma was observed by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) beginning at 16:30 UTC (Feb 20). Because the event was not facing Earth, it should have no impact on our planet.

Stay tuned to SolarHam.com for the most up to date spaceweather news, data and imagery.

REPORTS AND FORECAST | 30 Day DSD | Data Warehouse


Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center.
UPDATED 2017 March 01 1230 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was very low. There were three spotted regions on the
visible disk. Region 2640 (N08W10, Axx/alpha) lost its trailing spots,
Region 2638 (N16W49, Hsx/alpha) remained stable and mostly unchanged in
appearance, and Region 2641 (N15E20, Cao/beta) developed additional
leading spots. No Earth-directed CMEs were observed in available
satellite imagery.

.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to remain at very low levels with a chance
for C-class flare activity over the next three days (01-03 Mar).
