Solar Update. M-FLARES.........3.0 AND 4.5 FROM AR2192

Posted on at

Another R1 Radio Blackout was observed on Monday as region 2192 continues to churn out solar flares. The latest event initially peaked at M3.0, before rising again to M4.5 at 16:37 UTC. Additional flaring of the moderate to strong variety will be possible as the massive sunspot rotates into a geoeffective Earth facing position.

Geomagnetic Storm Watch Issued.

Unrelated to the current solar flare events, a minor geomagnetic storm watch has been issued due to ongoing solar wind enhancements. Sky watchers, especially around the Arctic Circle should be alert for visual aurora displays once it is dark outside.
