Solar activity is high. On October 24, 2013 at 00:30 UT, Earth-facing sunspot AR1877 erupted, producing a powerful M9-class solar flare. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the blast. More flares are in the offing. Two large sunspots, AR1875 and AR1877, have 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic fields that harbor energy for strong eruptions. NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of M-flares and a 5% chance of X-flares during the next 24 hours.

The sun is dotted with spots, and three of them pose a threat for strong eruptions. The sunspots most-likely-to-flare are circled in this Oct. 29, 2013 image of the sun from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. AR1875, AR1882 and AR1885 have 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic fields that harbor energy for X-class solar flares. One of these spots in particular, AR1882, is almost directly facing Earth, so any eruptions it unleashes would almost surely be geoeffective.

On Friday April 19 they didn't exist. On Saturday April 20, 2013 they are big sunspots. Today, sunspots AR1726 and AR1727 are rapidly emerging in the sun's northern hemisphere. The larger of the two, AR1726, contains nearly a dozen dark cores and spans 125,000 km from end to end. Solar wind flowing from this major coronal hole on the west and southwest earth facing side of the solar disk could reach Earth on April 25-27.

An unstable filament of magnetism on the Earth side of the sun erupted during the early hours of May 12, 2013. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the blast. The erupting filament did not spark a significant solar flare (that is, there was no strong flash of X-radiation), but it did hurl part of itself into space. SOHO photographed a bright coronal mass ejection (CME) emerging from the blast site: movie. The CME could deliver a slight, glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field on May… Earth's Magnetic Field, Solar Activity, Natural Wonders, Solar System, Soho, Astronomy, Sunsets, Flare, Strong

As of October 26,2013 solar activity remains high. NOAA forecasters estimate a 70% chance of M-flares and a 35% chance of X-flares during the next 24 hours. Over the next three days (Oct. 26-28), a series of CMEs created by the recent limb eruptions will deliver glancing blows to Earth's magnetic field, possibly sparking polar geomagnetic storms.

Today May 2nd, 2013 NOAA forecasters have raised the odds of an M-class solar flare today to 45%. There are at least two sunspots capable of producing such an eruption: AR1730 and AR1731. Sunspot AR1731 is located near the center of the solar disk, so any eruptions from that one will be Earth-directed. Solar Activity, M Class, Meteor Shower, At Least, Earth, Solar

The odds of a flare on the Earth side of the sun are ticking upward and flares on the far-side of the sun are already underway. Yesterday, May 1st, 2013 an active region located behind the sun's eastern limb hurled a plume of red-hot debris into space. Venus could received a glancing blow from the electrified cloud on May 3rd. Next week, Earth will enter the line of fire as the sun's rotation turns the active region toward our planet.
