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.

Contest Weekend
This weekend, one of the most popular and anticipated radio contests of the year takes place on HF (excluding WARC bands). CQ Worldwide SSB begins at 00:00 UTC Saturday and goes until 23:59 UTC Sunday. With the solar flux index above 200, and no geomagnetic storms in the forecast, band conditions should be excellent. Good luck to all those participating. Click HERE to visit the contest website.

Solar Update
Good morning. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Friday. Solar activity during the past 24 hours was moderate. Region 2192 produced an M4.0 solar flare at 07:48 UTC Friday morning. The event was associated with Type II and IV radio emissions, and what appears to be a southerly directed coronal mass ejection (CME). An impact to our geomagnetic field is not expected. The large active region remains magnetically complex, but continues to show some separation between the lead and trailing sections of the group. Despite this, another moderate to strong solar flare will be possible during the next 24 hours. Region 2192 will remain in a good geoeffective position for a couple more days before the rotation carries it further into the southwest quadrant. Elsewhere, all other visible regions are currently stable. New sunspots 2196 and 2197 were numbered overnight and do not appear to be very threatening at this time.

Eclipse and 2192
A partial solar eclipse observed across many parts of North America on Thursday provided many with a great photo opportunity. Not only did they capture the moon passing in front of the sun, but massive sunspot 2192 also shared the spotlight. Attached image below by Ron Cottrell in Arizona is a great example of what many witnessed. More imagery from Thursday can be found on SolarHam Facebook.

Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2014 October 24 1230 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was at low to moderate levels this period.  Region 2192
(S12W14, Fkc/beta-gamma-delta) produced an impulsive M4-flare at 24/0748
UTC as well as multiple mid-level C-class flares throughout the period. 
Region 2192 persists as the largest and most productive region on the
visible disk although a minor decay trend was observed as separation
between the leader and follower spot areas increased slightly this
period.  New Regions 2196 (S04E72, Axx/alpha) and 2197 (S12E69,
Axx/alpha) were numbered this period but were otherwise unremarkable. 
The other regions on the visible disk were either stable or in decay.
  
.Forecast...
M-class (R1-R2 (Minor-Moderate)) flare activity is expected with a
chance for X-class (R3 or greater) over the next three days (24-26 Oct)
with Region 2192 being the likely source or further activity.
