EVENT LOG: X2.2 SOLAR FLARE     SOURCE: Sunspot 2087
DISCUSSION:

An impulsive solar flare event measuring X2.2 was observed around region 2087 peaking at 11:42 UTC / June 10, 2014. A TenFlare measuring 1400 sfu and lasting 3 minutes was detected. So far only a small release of plasma appears to be evident. A small CME became visible in STEREO Ahead COR2 imagery following the event and appears to be directed to the southeast and away from our planet.

A small coronal mass ejection (CME) is now visible in the latest STEREO Ahead COR2 imagery and should be directed away from our planet. Because visible at 12:54 UTC. Image on the right.

The X2.2 solar flare was responsible for a 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) measuring 1400 solar flux units (SFU) and lasting a short duration of 3 minutes.

SUMMARY: 10cm Radio Burst
Begin Time: 2014 Jun 10 1139 UTC
Maximum Time: 2014 Jun 10 1140 UTC
End Time: 2014 Jun 10 1142 UTC
Duration: 3 minutes
Peak Flux: 1400 sfu
Latest Penticton Noon Flux: 161 sfu
Description: A 10cm radio burst indicates that the electromagnetic burst associated with a solar flare at the 10cm wavelength was double or greater than the initial 10cm radio background. This can be indicative of significant radio noise in association with a solar flare. This noise is generally short-lived but can cause interference for sensitive receivers including radar, GPS, and satellite communications.

Based on updated SDO imagery, only a small release of plasma appears to be evident. Based on the impulsive nature of the flare, a large CME is not likely. More updates to follow once updated coronagraph imagery is available.
