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.

Solar Update
Good morning. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Saturday. Solar activity again reached high levels with an X3.1 solar flare observed around region 2192 at 21:40 UTC Friday evening. Despite being a strong X-Ray event, it did once again fail to produce a noteworthy CME. New spot growth was observed during the past 12 hours within the lead spot section of 2192. The active region remains complex and could produce another moderate to strong solar flare during the next 24-48 hours. All other visible numbered regions were quiet. Continue to monitor SolarHam.com for the most up to date spaceweather data and imagery.

Strong Solar Flare (X3.1)
Sunspot 2192 unleashed the sixth strongest solar flare of the current solar cycle, an X3.1 event peaking at 21:40 UTC on Friday evening. Surprisingly, and disappointingly for sky watchers, the latest event looks to have once again failed to produce a noteworthy CME. Click HERE for the X3.1 event log.

Contest Weekend
This weekend, one of the most popular and anticipated radio contests of the year takes place on HF (excluding WARC bands). CQ Worldwide SSB begins at 00:00 UTC Saturday and goes until 23:59 UTC Sunday. With the solar flux index above 200, and no geomagnetic storms in the forecast, band conditions should be excellent. Good luck to all those participating. Click HERE to visit the contest website.

Eclipse and 2192
A partial solar eclipse observed across many parts of North America on Thursday provided many with a great photo opportunity. Not only did they capture the moon passing in front of the sun, but massive sunspot 2192 also shared the spotlight. Attached image below by Ron Cottrell in Arizona is a great example of what many witnessed. More imagery from Thursday can be found on SolarHam Facebook.

Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2014 October 25 1230 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity reached high levels this period.  Region 2192 (S12W27,
Fkc/beta-gamma-delta) produced a long duration X3/3f flare at 24/2141
UTC as well as a long duration C9 flare at 25/0808 UTC, which were the
largest events of the period.  Region 2192 exhibited penumbral growth in
its leader spot area with umbral consolidation in its trailer spot area,
and persists as the most threatening region on the visible disk.  Minor
growth was observed in the trailer spot area of Region 2195 (N08E40,
Dso/beta) and the other regions on the disk were either stable or in
decay.  A narrow coronal mass ejection (CME) associated with the X3
flare was observed in SOHO LASCO C2 imagery beginning at 25/2148 UTC but
was directed well south of the Sun-Earth line.  No Earth-directed CMEs
were observed this period.
  
.Forecast...
Solar activity is expected to be moderate (R1-R2 (Minor-Moderate)) with
a chance for X-class (R3 or greater) flare activity over the next three
days (25-27 Oct) with Region 2192 being the likely source.
