X – Ray Event Exceeded M5 From Sun Today

Sunspot 1283 has shot off an M-Class solar flare, which is directed at Earth. M-Class solar flares like this could cause a moderate effect on our radio and electrical grid systems but NOAA does not forecast a major geomagnetic storm with it. The flare was from a sunspot group crossing the central disk of the … Continue reading

New Pattern of Solar Flares Scheduled to Last for Nine Years

New solar flare and solar storm activity Tuesday was the biggest in several years and is part of a pattern of solar storms scheduled to last until 2020. U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted four “extreme” solar emissions which could threaten the Earth this decade, and with solar flare activity expected to peak around … Continue reading
