More Storming Next Week Possible
December 2, 2022 @ 13:40 UTC
The high speed solar wind stream and periods of minor (G1) geomagnetic storming the past several days was all thanks to coronal hole #51, now turning away from Earth. The solar wind is still moving past Earth around 600 km/s, but is expected to gradually weaken over the next few days. The good news is that another coronal hole (53) that is similar in location and size will begin to face Earth early next week. This means another high speed stream and possible storming could be right around the corner. More updates in the days ahead.

Incoming Sunspots
December 1, 2022 @ 00:10 UTC
The beginning of December will see a potential influx of sunspots. A new active region is now beginning to turn into view off the southeast limb and was the source of a number of minor C-Flares on Wednesday. In addition to this, old regions 3140, 3141 and 3145 from earlier in November are about to turn back into view from behind the northeast limb. We will begin to see what remains of these regions during the next 48 hours. Image by SDO/HMI.
