AR 2699 has produced a C4 class solar flare today. We are also monitoring a coronal hole that has expanded even more today on the eastern limb of our star. Geomagnetic activity is expected. Stay tuned to the Grand Solar Minimum channel for more updates!
Courtesy of spaceweather.com :C-CLASS SOLAR FLARE: This weekend, sunspot AR2699 is directly facing Earth. At 1321 UT on Feb. 10th, the sunspot’s magnetic canopy erupted, producing a C4-class solar flare. Extreme UV radiation from the flare ionized the top of Earth’s atmosphere. This, in turn, caused a brief ‘brownout’ of shortwave radio signals over South America and the South Atlantic Ocean: map. Frequencies affected were below 10 MHz.
Thank you to The Watchers for featuring our interview with John L Casey. The last known interview done with John. We are proud to have spoke to John and what he had to say is crucial about the upcoming Grand Solar Minimum.
The Grand Solar Minimum Channel on YouTube interviewed author John L. Casey, a former White House national space policy advisor, NASA headquarters consultant & space shuttle engineer.
Sunspot grouping AR 2699 now carries a potential threat for an M class solar Flare. AR 2699 has already once shot out a strong C class solar flare in the past 36-48 hours and we will be monitoring as AR 2699 is turning earth facing ….
A winter storm is set to impact parts of the mid west and the northeastern parts of the lower 48. Several inches are expected to be dumped from Friday 2-9-18 through late Sunday 2-11-18. Stay tuned to the Grand Solar Minimum Channel for more updates
