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 Watch / Geomagnetic Storm Warning
A high speed solar wind stream combined with periods of southward Bz is leading to geomagnetic storming at high latitudes. It should also be noted that a Moderate (G2) geomagnetic storm watch is now in effect. Sky watchers should be alert for visible aurora during the next 24 hours.

WARNING: Geomagnetic K-Index of 6 expected
Valid From: 2015 Jul 04 2050 UTC
Valid To: 2015 Jul 05 0100 UTC
Warning Condition: Onset
NOAA Scale: G2 - Moderate

Solar Update
Good morning and a happy 4th of July to my American friends to the south. I hope you all have a great day!

Solar activity on Saturday morning is at very low levels. All visible sunspot regions are currently stable. New regions 2380 and 2381 were numbered overnight. There will remain a chance for minor C-Flares and a low threat for an isolated M-Flare. No Earth directed coronal mass ejections were detected during the past day. Stay tuned to SolarHam.com for the latest information.

SolarHam Fundraising Complete
Thanks to 302 kind individuals and a late surge of amazing support, I can officially announce that SolarHam.com is 100% funded until 2017. I appreciate your ongoing support and am happy to continue dedicating my time to running the website. During the next few days, I will finish confirming the contest entries through E-Mail and will announce a draw date as soon as that is completed. Some T-Shirts are now in stock and will begin shipping soon. Coffee Mugs will be ordered once I finish confirming the quantities required, likely by next week. Thanks again!

REPORTS AND FORECAST | 30 Day DSD | Data Warehouse


Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2015 July 5 0030 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was at low levels.  Region 2378 (S16E44, Cso/beta)
produced a C1 flare at 04/0008 UTC which was the largest event of the
period.  Region 2378 exhibited minor penumbral decay and consolidation
in its trailer spot area late in the period.  Region 2376 (N12E02,
Dao/beta) produced a B5/Sf flare at 04/1505 UTC and underwent minor
decay throughout the period.  The remaining six active regions on the
visible disk were either stable or in decay.

An eruptive prominence centered near N31E90 was observed in SDO/AIA
imagery beginning at 04/1915 UTC.  Coronagraph imagery and its location
suggests that the coronal mass ejection (CME) is directed away from the
Sun-Earth line.

.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to be low with a slight chance for M-class
(R1-R2/Minor-Moderate) flares over the next three days (05-07 Jul).
