SUNSPOT AR2775: A new sunspot is growing in the sun's southern hemisphere. Numbered AR2775, it is inset in this magnetic map of the sun's surface from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory: [link to www.spaceweather.com (secure)]

The +/- magnetic polarity of AR2775 marks it as a member of new Solar Cycle 25. About half a dozen dark cores, each about the size of the Moon, are scattered across 75,000 km of solar terrain, making AR2775 a small sunspot. Only if it continues to grow will it pose a threat for significant flares. Stay tuned.

AURORAS WITHOUT A SOLAR STORM: Yesterday, there was no solar flare, no coronal mass ejection (CME), no solar activity of any kind. Then this happened:
https://imgur.com/TMh2Dnb


"On Oct. 11th we saw this amazing outburst," reports Markus Varik of Tromsø Norway. "We headed out with a small group of adventurers on what seemed like Mission Impossible. There was no hope of finding auroras. But never say 'never.' We got the complete palette of colors."

There is an explanation: Just as Varik headed out, a crack opened in Earth's magnetic field. Slow-moving solar wind poured through the gap, sparking auroras. This kind of unpredictable display can happen at any time around the Arctic Circle, where magnetic cracks often surprise observers--no solar storm required.

RARE RED AURORAS: Arctic photographer Rayann Elzein sees auroras all the time over Utsjoki, Finland. But the auroras he saw last night were different. "They were red," he says. "Almost only red."

"Rarely have I seen anything like this before," says Elzein. "I double-checked the white balance on my camera to make sure nothing was wrong. But it was the same color temperature as on all my other northern lights pictures."

The ≥10 MeV products match the NOAA Solar Radiation Storm (S-scale) thresholds (10, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000 pfu), based upon values observed or expected on the primary GOES satellite.

So the last reading we got was Oct 5 and it was 26k pfu , up 3k pfu from Oct 4.

BUT - Oct 3rd we were at 38k pfu and at 32k pfu Oct 2 , so that goes to show there is significant MeV fluctuations happening in a short amount of time.

And given we were in the upward trend, I'd speculate that maybe when that last eruption occurred , we just hit the 100k pfu mark and that's why it's not giving us a number.

2775 highly destabilized - multiple flare ups and plasma bursts today. We are still in the red zone for this one.


Can also see ANOTHER MASSIVE sunspot already formed and coming around on the southern hemisphere at the same longitude as 2775


[link to weather.msfc.nasa.gov (secure)]

[link to www.swpc.noaa.gov (secure)]

[link to sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov (secure)]

And this is all evident in the flux level - Which continues to see a consistent, slowly gradual lift at increasingly greater intensity of spikes over the past 24 hours and is only showing further indication of continuing to rise.

We have as much impacting us as if there was a B-class flare - but there isn't even a flare

Looks like Russia is ahead in the space race - unless I missed NASA's mention of this..............

Russian scientists predict that a magnetic storm is approaching Earth on October 20 and will last for several days, reaching its highest intensity peak on October 25

According to the forecast, the initial class G1 magnetic storm will begin on October 20 and intensify from 21 to the 25, when it reaches its highest peak, the G2. After that, the Earth’s magnetosphere will be under a strong magnetic storm for three days and on October 29 it will normalize.

Thank you! Surely you know it IS all life though we might disagree on the particulars of how it came to being and our purpose of adherence. ~

And that was a different AC who fortunately answered because I didn't even know what that is myself!

But yes apparently NASA does have the Enlil model for their solar wind prediction center. We seem to be in the middle of a crossfire - yet somehow in a very narrow least affected zone - which is still going to be affected.

I would of course speculate that no model is 100% accurate and certainly could be less , or more , severe than they can calculate. ~

Sunspot 2776 official

So as we leave the red zone of 2775 , the massive one in approach has been dubbed 2776.

[link to sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov (secure)]

[link to www.swpc.noaa.gov (secure)]

Unlike the previous threatening sunspots we've had these past couple months , this one was already formed long before the others , it is much bigger and being aged very much increases the chances of an eruption while we're in the red zone.

Still NO OFFICIAL UPDATE OR WARNINGS from NASA's alert center , however we continue to see volatile spikes in the flux and average threshold maximums consistently increasing and probably because it's automatic - the events are auto-updating.
