Solar Update

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.
