Hold onto your socks ladies and gentlemen, it could be a fun filled weekend as our lovely Sol is in party mode again.
NOAA is showing only a 15% chance of M Class and 1% chance of X Class flares, but as yesterdays massive CME shows, Flares are only one aspect of the Suns energetic activities. Yesterday Sol had a filament rip off, sending a huge fast moving CME directly towards Earth- due to hit sometime today. I'm still watching for updates on timing.
More energy to go along with the energy we're already experiencing..... mood swings and headache alert everyone!
Region 1692 erupted with long duration M-class solar flare peaking at 06:50 UTC as M1.2 solar flare on March 15, 2013. The event started at 05:52 and ended at 07:30 UTC. A Full-Halo Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was observed and it looks to be Earth directed.
A 10cm Radio Burst was associated with the event indicating significant radio noise in association with a solar flare. This noise is generally short-lived but can cause interference for sensitive receivers including radar, GPS, and satellite communications. Region 1692 was still classified with Alpha magnetic configuration at 0:30 UTC today.
The fast moving cloud should directly impact Earth by tomorrow evening.
Space Weather Message Code: SUM10R Serial Number: 573 Issue Time: 2013 Mar 15 07:53 UTC
SUMMARY: 10cm Radio Burst Begin Time: 2013 Mar 15 0631 UTC Maximum Time: 2013 Mar 15 0649 UTC End Time: 2013 Mar 15 0651 UTC Duration: 20 minutes Peak Flux: 150 sfu Latest Penticton Noon Flux: 123 sfu
Description: A 10cm radio burst indicates that the electromagnetic burst associated with a solar flare at the 10cm wavelength was double or greater than the initial 10cm radio background. This can be indicative of significant radio noise in association with a solar flare. This noise is generally short-lived but can cause interference for sensitive receivers including radar, GPS, and satellite communications.
