Geomagnetic Storm Watch / Incoming CME

A coronal mass ejection (CME) generated by a southern hemisphere filament eruption on February 20th is predicted to possibly deliver a glancing blow to Earths geomagnetic field by late on February 23rd and into the 24th (UTC). Enhanced geomagnetic activity, possible reaching the minor (G1) geomagnetic storm threshold will be possible. More updates to follow whenever necessary.

Pair of Sunspots

Two new active regions (AR 2804 and AR 2805) formed rapidly on Monday. Very minor B-Class flares are being detected around AR 2804 in the northern hemisphere. An isolated C-Flare will also be possible. In the southern hemisphere, AR 2805 is showing signs of growth and will be monitored.
