Solar Update Sunspot #1429 – #2 Alert


The x-flare did give earth a glancing blow, with solar winds in excess of 800 KM/s.  There were some minor disruptions of satellites, but no significant communications or power disruptions.  There has been a 7.1 earthquake in Vanatu, but no significant tsunami is reported associated with the quake.

However, at 3:53 UTC Friday, #1429 gave birth to an M6.3 flare with an associated Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that is is partial earth directed.  This CME is not well organized and shouldn’t pose any major problems, but this event does hold up the concern that #1429 has teeth.  We will continue to monitor the situation and update as warranted.  A great site here http://www.solarham.com/ to keep updated real time.  If you have communications, IT, or power production responsibilities, it might be a good site to keep your eye on during the next 7-10 days.
