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.

Weak Shock Passage / BZ south
The Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) has been pointing sharply south for several hours on Wednesday. The enhanced solar wind stream appears to be related to an anticipated weak interplanetary shockwave. Enhanced geomagnetic activity, possibly reaching minor G1 storm levels is being observed at high latitudes. Be on the lookout for visual aurora if you are high in latitude and it is dark outside. Stuart Milliner sends us the awesome aurora photo below he captured very early Wednesday morning from near Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Thanks Stuart for sharing with us!.

More great imagery by Zoltan Kenwell, Paul Zizka and Chris Ratzlaff in Alberta, Canada, and Jay Reau in Jämtland, Sweden.

Solar Update
Below is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Wednesday. Solar activity during the past 24 hours was low. Both regions 2146 have been producing minor C-Class solar flares. All other visible regions were stable.There will remain a chance for an isolated M-Class event. No Earth directed coronal mass ejections were observed during the past day.

Earth is currently passing through an enhanced solar wind stream stemming from a pair of faint coronal mass ejections observed on August 22nd. The Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) has been pointing sharply south for several hours. Minor geomagnetic actiivty, possibly reaching minor G1 storm levels, will be possible during the next 24 hours.

Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2014 August 27 1230 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was low. Region 2146 (N08W65, Dki/beta-gamma-delta)
remains the most threatening, producing a C5/Sf flare at 26/2325 UTC, as
well as a few low level, C-class flares over the period.  Region 2149
(N10E03, Eac/beta) produced a C4/Sn flare at 27/0358 UTC.  Both regions
decayed during the period, although 2146 grew more magnetically complex.
The remaining regions were stable or decaying.  No Earth-directed CMEs
were noted.

.Forecast...
There is a chance for M-class flares (R1 radio blackouts) for days one
through three (27-29 Aug).
