Latest Space Weather News and Updates

Quick Solar Update
Solar activity continues at very low levels Sunday following minor C-Flares around region 2628 on Saturday. The region showed some separation between the lead and trailing sections of the group and this is likely why it has grown quiet. Minor C-Class flares will remain possible during the next 12-24 hours.

Solar Update
Good evening. Solar activity returned to very low levels late on Saturday following upper level C-Class flares earlier in the day around region 2628. The active region continues to evolve and now has a Beta-Gamma magnetic configuration. Additional C-Flares will still be possible with a chance for an isolated moderate M-Flare. Region 2627 will also remain a threat for at least minor C-Flares at it too continues to evolve in the northeast quadrant.

Coronal Hole # 56 located at middle latitude will begin to face Earth by January 26th. Enhanced geomagnetic activity will be possible once a high speed solar wind stream arrives past Earth. More updates regarding this in the days ahead.

Lastly, the Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field has been pointing south at times and this is helping to stir up minor geomagnetic activity at higher latitudes (Kp4). Sky watchers, especially around the Arctic Circle should be alert for visible aurora once dark outside. Stay tuned to SolarHam.com for the most up to date spaceweather news, data and imagery.

Fundraising 94% To Goal
94% down, 6% to go.

Thanks to 240 rocking individuals, SolarHam.com is now 94% funded for the next 3+ years. Without them, the website and the service I work hard at providing would not be possible. I really appreciate the support.

If you find the website useful and want to keep it going, please consider a donation if at all possible. If you are not in a position to donate, I still hope you enjoy your visit to SolarHam.com for up to date and reliable spaceweather news, data and analysis. Please HERE if you are interested in supporting the service. Thanks again! - Kevin

REPORTS AND FORECAST | 30 Day DSD | Data Warehouse


Prepared jointly by the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NOAA,
Space Weather Prediction Center and the U.S. Air Force.
UPDATED 2017 January 23 0030 UTC

.24 hr Summary...
Solar activity declined to very low levels with only background activity
observed. Region 2628 (N12E21, Dao/beta-gamma) remained the largest spot
group on the disk. During the period, Region 2628 showed overall area
growth, particularly in its large leader spot, but indicated some
intermediate spot loss while maintaining a weak mixed polarity
configuration. Region 2627 (N06E01, Dai/beta) had slight intermediate
spot growth, but was otherwise unchanged. Region 2625 (N01W62,
Axx/alpha) exhibited penumbra decay while Region 2626 (N08W50,
Hax/alpha) was unchanged. No Earth-directed CMEs were observed in
available coronagraph imagery.

.Forecast...
Solar activity is likely to be low with a slight chance for M-class
flares (R1-R2, Minor-Moderate) over the next three days (23-25 Jan) due
to the flare potential from both Regions 2627 and 2628.
