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 / Aurora Watch
Attached is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Friday. Solar activity declined to very low levels this morning. Region 2146 is now located off the west limb and out of direct Earth view. Region 2149 in the northwest quadrant is showing some new spot growth to the south of the main core and will remain a threat for at least C-Class solar flares. All other visible regions are currently stable. No Earth directed coronal mass ejections were observed during the past day.

Yet another period of southward Bz overnight was enough to help trigger additional geomagnetic disturbances. NOAA issued at watch Friday morning for minor G1 level geomagnetic storming. Sky watchers at high latitude should remain alert of it is dark outside.

Farsided Eruption
A coronal mass ejection (CME) observed on Thursday afternoon initially looked to have originated near the NW limb, however new coronagraph imagery courtesy of LASCO C3 shows that this was a fully farsided event. The plasma cloud is heading completely away from Earth. The source appears to have been an eruption around old region 2144 from the previous rotation. STEREO Behind EUVI imagery first detected the event beginning after 16:00 UTC. The CME first became visible in STEREO Behind COR2 imagery at 17:54 UTC. We will not see the return of this active region until next week.

G1 Geomagnetic Storm / Aurora Show Part II
Increased geomagnetic activity continues with a period of minor G1 geomagnetic storming observed at 05:40 UTC. The Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) continues to point south (-10nT). Aurora was once again reported across many locations from Scandinavia, Canada, Alaska and New Zealand. Sky watchers located at high latitude should remain alert for visual aurora if it is dark outside. Below is a nice photo sent to us by Robert Kucirek in Hallnas, Sweden. Additional imagery is listed below.

More great photos by: Jay Reau in Jämtland, Sweden, Tony Travaglia in New Zealand, Kevin Saurin in Sogndal, Norway and Stuart Milliner in Alberta, Canada.

Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2014 August 29 1230 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity was low.  Region 2146 (N08, L=347) produced a pair of C1
flares at 28/1520 and 29/0226 UTC and continued to rotate behind the
west limb this period.

Region 2149 (N10W29, Cso/beta) showed rapid development south of its
main spot area late in the period.  New Region 2153 (S11E25, Axx/alpha)
was numbered this period but was otherwise unremarkable.  The other
regions on the visible disk were either stable or in decay.
