Re: SOLAR WATCH * 312 M & 25 X FLARES starting 3-7-2011 (Updated Daily)
Thanks everyone for all the good info interesting links.rockon

There's an emerging group of small spots to the north of #1362. Keep an eye on this as it's growing quickly. Also, another active region can be seen coming over the NE limb. Both of these regions are still un-numbered. I believe regions 1362 & 1363 are capable of producing strong flares. The background radiation has increased to C-levels. Almost all of the Earth-facing filaments have been cleared away or gone over the limb.

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict an unanticipated geomagnetic disturbance soon. I'm basing this on the STEREO A+B HI 2 instrument. There seems to be a lot of "schmutz" floating around from all of the CMEs and F -eruptions of late. To me it seems Earth will at least see some ripples in the coming space weather. If I'm wrong I'll put less stock in some of the HI2 images in the future. To see what I'm seeing go to the STEREO movie-maker and check the HI 2 (both A and B) for the last 10 images and select "slideshow". These images show the closest field-of-view to Earth. Unfortunately the HI 2 only has a few frames per day and the resolution is poor.

Stay alert for an M-flare so we can get NIN to come back.

thanks for the links , Hugh.

unfortunately they are, the none of them, useful. Largely due to the age of the lists, but also cuz they are lists of all CMEs and i am just interested in earth interacting CMEs.

my suggestion was that we build our own database using our own observations: we can make this a going forward thing, rather than a looking back thing?

within a coupla weeks (ish), i should have my geomag monitoring and analysis software working properly. This will be a LabView based application that will take realtime geomag data from a number of sites and build 'picture' of earth's geofield. not an image, but a way to look at the rhythm so we can see perturbances (hopefully mapped spacially and chronologically) easily. i'll make a copy available to y'all when it's useful (i can supply stand alone apps that do not require buying the base software).

what i'd like is to include a database of earthbound CME into the analysis and was wondering if we could just make that happen here, what with all the cross talk and checking, i think we're more likely have an accurate data set.

detected earth bound CME's with Solar exit time and earth impact time (if possible)

i'm pretty sure most of the science kids are considering solar/earth dynamics as isolated systems and not looking, at all, at the interaction + i'll be mapping other things to the earth's magfield wobbliness : things that many scientists would prolly not consider.

we need to think "interaction" not "reductive"....holistic over specific.

Hello, Finley,hfof course we missed you and NINzrez too. Seems a lot of CMEs in the past week are going to miss us, too. We've been too lucky to have all this action going to the right and to the left-almost every big CME blasts off at 90 degree angle to Earth. Divine intervention maybe?

Well that's Dutchsinse and he overreacts sometimes (IMHO) and it's probably a cme. Yes I can almost guarantee it's a cme that is hitting us. NASA and many sites, Spaceweather etc...tend to be behind on their updates. There have been a lot of near misses from our friend the sun. More than not they will update after the happening.

This is one of the reasons we are so happy with this thread. We can keep each other aware of what's going on. Many times the regular Solar sites will be missing data and you have to check them from all over the world to get a clue. Hugh has some spaceweather sites linked above.

The model from NICT is a realtime simulation based on data from the ACE spacecraft so it's impossible for it to show anything coming FROM Earth. The ACE satellite orbits at the LaGrange position about 1 million miles from Earth-between the Sun and Earth.
[link to media.caltech.edu]

The ACE data is fed into computer simulation in Japan at NICT.

[link to www2.nict.go.jp]

Anyway, so far geo-magnetic activity is Quiet as measured by the Kp Index (K=2 on a scale of 0-9). I do find it strange however that the pressure in the simulation looks so intense for such a weak disturbance. There was a forecast for increased solar wind due to coronal hole windstream. Earlier today I personally forecast a magnetic disturbance from some solar plasma ejected from a CME earlier in the week (I think it's on the page before this one).

It happens quite often. The southward line is when the Bz vector is a negative number or simply denoted "south". Right now it's 5.5 north, but earlier it was southward-it sometimes flips back and forth. Read this link -below the graphic.

On the NICT sim. there's a graph Bz; where it's RED means south and the GREEN is north. Generally the farther south, the better chance for aurora and strong geo-storms. But that's not always the case, haha.

There was another large CME near the sun's north pole a few hours ago. Most likely this was another filament blasting off. This was not Earth-facing. SOHO and STEREO A were both asleep at the time (doh!) but I found a pic of the aftermath from SOHO Coronagraph 3.
:cme1203:

Finley, you may want to see what you missed last week. SOHO has posted a composite movie of 12 CMEs in 8 days. Very impressive performance.

Region 1355 rotates over the north-west limb

Five C class solar flares took place yesterday mostly from region 1361 and 1364



The large coronal mass ejection from yesterday as you all know associated with a erupting filament will be a miss

But anyway there is still a chance for a glancing bowl



:coronaholedec2:
Image shows you a small coronal hole (dark area) near the southern solar pole, this will cause a increase in geomagnetic activity


:StereoADec2:

We have another cme(farside; not earth directed) still ongoing..img taken this morning

Have a look latest Movie Stere A C2:

SIDC - RWC BELGIUM Fri Dec 2 2011, 1125 UT

reports now:

Solar flaring activity is expected to remain at the C level, with several sunspot groups capable to produce a weak C-class flare. An M-class flare is possible but unlikely.
The Earth is currently inside a slow (around 400 km/s) solar wind flow with weak (around 3 nT) interplanetary magnetic field magnitude. We expect quiet geomagnetic conditions in the coming hours. Tomorrow we expect the arrival of a fast solar wind stream from a low-latitude extension of the southern polar coronal hole. No significant geomagnetic perturbation is expected, with at most active geomagnetic conditions (K = 4).

SUNSPOT UPDATE:


Region 1356 rotated over the north-west limb while a new region 1365 emerged on the north-east limb


This group showed steady growth

However, region 1363 doubled in size yesterday to 250 millionths and was a EHI type group


Several C1 solar flares took place, which is not that much higher than the background X-ray flux level

C class flares are expected with the slightest chance of an M class flare from regions 1363 and 1365, if growth continues

Stormy Sun could knock out power grids...

The report by German insurance group Allianz said a high impact solar storm, not easily predicted due to its recorded rarity, could cause blackouts and economic losses of over $1 trillion and that the worst case scenario would be even worse.

"What we're coming into at the moment is the bad (space)weather period," Jim Wild of Britain's Lancaster University, an expert in solar plasma physics, told Reuters.
