SolarHam News (June 2021)

Solar Update
June 12, 2021 @ 12:20 UTC
Good morning. Solar activity remains at very low levels. AR 2827 decayed to plage status and AR 2832 continued to gradually decay as well. Old region 2826 from the previous rotation is now turning back into view off the northeast limb. Image by SDO/HMI.

Limb Eruptions
June 9, 2021 @ 20:35 UTC
A number of eruptions from just off the northwest limb today in the vicinity of departing AR 2831, including one within the past 30 minutes. Any CME activity related to these eruptions would likely be directed away from Earth. Still great to observe!

Solar Update

Hello Solar Hammers. Solar activity continues at quiet levels with no major flare activity to report. Both AR 2827 and 2829 appear to be in a state of decay. A small new sunspot looks to be forming in the southwest quadrant and will be monitored.

A coronal hole will begin to face Earth over the next few days. A geomagnetic enhancement (Kp4) will be possible beginning June 8th. More updates in the days ahead.

Weak CME Impact
June 2, 2021 @ 14:30 UTC
What appears to be the expected edge of the CME observed on May 28th, passed the DSCOVR spacecraft within the past few hours. A noteworthy impact to our geomagnetic field is not currently expected. A KP of 4 at best remains forecast by the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC).

Hello again and welcome to June. Solar activity remains at very low levels. AR 2827 did show some signs of decay during the past 24 hours and is not considered a threat for noteworthy solar flares. A small sunspot formed in the southeast quadrant and will likely be assigned AR 2829. Image by SDO/HMI.

Geomagnetic activity also remains quiet. A watch for active conditions (KP4) will remain in effect for the next 12 hours should a CME observed on May 28th slip past our planet, otherwise unsettled conditions will be possible due to incoming coronal hole stream effects.
