PostSubject: INCREASING CHANCE OF FLARES   Tue Aug 13, 2013 9:42 pm

We may finally get to see some auroras after all this summer. with the northern latitudes coming into Aurora season this should make our chances even better. By Aurora season I just mean the darker months of the year in the northern latitudes. With two active sunspots pointing our way this could be an interesting week.

Two new sunspots are growing rapidly in the sun's southern hemisphere. One of them, AR1817, is directly facing Earth and poses a threat for X-class solar flares. A movie from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory shows the sunspot's development over the past 48 hours:

AR1817 has a 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbors energy for strong eruptions. NOAA forecasters estimate a 30% chance of M-class flares and a 5% chance of X-class flares on August 13th
