It has been quiet for the last month astronomically which of course is very good news for us. There are still lots of active sunspots but they all seem to be minor and pose little or no threat. Let's hope it stays that way.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Good chance of auroral activity on Sept 12th as a CME is expected to deliver a glancing but potent blow to Earth's magnetic field. SpaceWeather.com states "The storm could reach moderate intensity (G2-class) with auroras visible across northern-tier US states such as Maine, Michigan, and Minnesota." The Flare that produced the CME was of very long duration, almost six hours of eruptions in total.

X class flare
« Reply #104 on: September 10, 2014, 06:10:32 PM »
The same sunspot, AR2158 which is now pointed directly at Earth Just released a X class flare.

According to Spaceweather.com:

"X-FLARE: Active sunspot AR2158 erupted on Sept. 10th, producing a strong X1.6-class solar flare. Because the sunspot is directly facing Earth, this is a geoeffective event. HF radio blackouts and other communications disturbances have already been observed on the day-lit side of Earth. Stay tuned to http://spaceweather.com for more information and updates about the possibility of an Earth-directed CME and geomagnetic storms in the days ahead."

A pair od CME's from sunspot AR2158 will impact the earth this weekend. The second CME released from yesterdays X class is travelling very fast at 3750 km/s.   Spaceweather.com is predicting a 79% chance of a severe geomagnetic storm at high latitudes and a 20%  chance of a severe geomagnetic storm at mid latitudes within the next 48 hours. They also predict a 40% chance of another X class flare.  While these CME's are nothing to be worried about we should get a good light show if the skies are clear.

Increased chance of flares in the next couple of days as sunspot AR2177 turns towards Earth. There is a high potential for both M and X class flares.

The big sunspot AR2192 is turning towards the Earth. It has already released one X class flare and is definitely one to keep an eye on in the next couple of days.

It has been relatively quiet for a while however sunspot 2242 erupted with an X-class flare about 20 minutes ago. It looks like a CME will be following in the next few days. No need to panic as it was less than 2.0 on the X-class scale.

Today there was an X class solar fare from sunspot AR2297.  This sunspot has been very active all week but today's was a really big one. On March 11th at 16:22 UT (09:22 PDT), Earth orbiting-satellites detected an X2-class flare. There was an associated  radio black out for frequencies below 10Mhz.

Another X class flare
« Reply #110 on: May 06, 2015, 02:08:24 PM »
X-FLARE: Emerging sunspot AR2339 unleashed an intense X2-class solar flare on May 5th at approximately 22:11 UT. Radiation from the flare caused strong radio blackouts on the Pacific side of Earth, interfering with communications at frequencies below ~20 MHz. The blast also hurled a CME into space, but not toward Earth. This event could herald a sustained period of high solar activity, as AR2339 appears to be large and explosive. Check http://spaceweather.com for more information and updates.
