PostSubject: The Sun is Crackling and Popping this week.   Sat Oct 26, 2013 11:35 pm

After a relatively quiet period of solar activity the sun has really begun to become active this week including a somewhat rare global solar eruption. It has also produced multiple M and X class flares. So far we have nothing to be worried about but there are quite a few active regions facing earth and activity is expected to remain high for the next week.

For those who live in the Northern latitudes you will probably get one heck of a show this week. It still remains to be seen whether or not we will have any auroras appear in the mid latitudes. Here is a link to for anyone who is interested in keeping an eye on things. I know I will be.

Quote :
Solar activity remains high. NOAA forecasters estimate a 70% chance of M-flares and a 35% chance of X-flares during the next 24 hours. Over the next three days (Oct. 26-28), a series of CMEs created by the recent limb eruptions will deliver glancing blows to Earth's magnetic field, possibly sparking polar geomagnetic storms. Aurora alerts: text, voice.

INTERCONNECTED SOLAR ACTIVITY: The X1-flare of Oct. 25th was remarkable not only for its strength, but also for its interconnectedness. The flare was bracketed by two erupting magnetic filaments, each located hundreds of thousands of kilometers from the instigating sunspot AR1882. The whole episoide, shown in this SDO movie, was reminiscent of the famous global eruption of August 2010.
