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.

Solar Update
Good morning. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Saturday. Solar activity this morning is at very low to low levels with no noteworthy solar flares to report. Region 2403 is now turning onto the west limb and will soon be out of direct Earth view. The active region will remain a threat for an isolated M-Flare, however due to its non geoeffective position, any eruptions at this point will likely be directed away from our planet. No Earth directed coronal mass ejections were detected during the past day.

Unsettled geomagnetic conditions (Kp=4) to minor storm levels (Kp=5) is to be expected during the next 12-24 hours while our geomagnetic field remains under the influence of an enhanced solar wind stream. Quieter levels are expected within 24-48 hours. Stay tuned to SolarHam.com for the latest information.

August 28, 2015 @ 16:55 UTC (UPDATED)
Solar Update / M2.2 Flare / More Storming
Good morning. Attached image below courtesy of the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) using the 131 angstroms channel captures an M2.2 solar flare that was detected around sunspot 2403 at 13:16 UTC (Aug 28). The active region is now set to rotate onto the west limb and future eruptions will likely be directed away from our planet. More updates regarding this particular flare to follow if required.

Geomagnetic activity is now at quieter levels on Friday morning following a prolonged period of Kp4 to Kp6 levels due to a primarily south pointing Bz. Visible aurora was reported across many locations from Scandinavia, USA, Canada and Alaska. Additional storming will remain possible during the next 24 hours depending on the dynamics of the solar wind. Stay tuned to SolarHam.com for the latest information.

UPDATE @ 16:55 UTC: The Bz is again pointing sharply south (-15nT). A geomagnetic storm is once again underway at high latitudes.

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 August 31 0030 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was at moderate levels. Region 2403 (S15W89, Dao/beta),
produced the largest flare of the period, a long duration M1 at 30/0330
UTC, as it continued to rotate around the west limb. Region 2405
(S20E09, Bxo/beta) and Region 2406 (N03E22, Axx/alpha) remained
relatively simple and inactive through the period. New Region 2407
(N15W48, Cro/beta) emerged and was numbered during the period. No
Earth-directed coronal mass ejections were observed.

.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to be at low levels on day one (31 Aug) with
a chance for M-class flares (R1-Minor). Activity is expected to decrease
on days two and three (01-02 Sep) to only a chance for C-class flares as
Region 2403 rotates further around the west limb.
