Yellow Alert – Solar Flare Alert – June 10, 2014


Two X-class solar flares have occurred in the last 24 hours. These flares have occurred around region 2087, which is rotating into earth view.

FIRST X-CLASS Flare

The first flare, an impulsive solar flare event measuring X2.2 was observed around region 2087 peaking at 11:42 UTC / June 10, 2014. A TenFlare measuring 1400 sfu and lasting 3 minutes was detected. So far only a small release of plasma appears to be evident. A small CME became visible in STEREO Ahead COR2 imagery following the event and appears to be directed to the southeast and away from our planet.

A small coronal mass ejection (CME) is now visible in the latest STEREO Ahead COR2 imagery and should be directed away from our planet. Because visible at 12:54 UTC.

SUMMARY: 10cm Radio Burst
Begin Time: 2014 Jun 10 1139 UTC
Maximum Time: 2014 Jun 10 1140 UTC
End Time: 2014 Jun 10 1142 UTC
Duration: 3 minutes
Peak Flux: 1400 sfu
Latest Penticton Noon Flux: 161 sfu
Description: A 10cm radio burst indicates that the electromagnetic burst associated with a solar flare at the 10cm wavelength was double or greater than the initial 10cm radio background. This can be indicative of significant radio noise in association with a solar flare. This noise is generally short-lived but can cause interference for sensitive receivers including radar, GPS, and satellite communications.

SECOND X-CLASS Flare

The second X Flare measuring X1.5 was observed around region 2087 at 12:52 UTC / June 10, 2014. This was the second such event in just over an hour. The event was associated with a Type IV radio emission and a 10cm Radio Burst measuring 530 solar flux units and lasting 18 minutes. A bright coronal mass ejection (CME) became visible shortly afterwards in STEREO Ahead COR2 imagery. Due to the limb proximity, the plasma cloud was directed to the east and away from Earth.

The WSA-Enlil Solar Wind Prediction model released by the Space Weather Prediction Center has been updated to include the bright CME from this morning following the second X-Flare event (X1.5). As expected, the expansive plasma cloud will likely pass to the east of our planet and have little to no impact on our geomagnetic field.

SUMMARY: 10cm Radio Burst
Begin Time: 2014 Jun 10 1241 UTC
Maximum Time: 2014 Jun 10 1247 UTC
End Time: 2014 Jun 10 1259 UTC
Duration: 18 minutes
Peak Flux: 530 sfu

THE CONCERN

An alert for major flaring has been issued.

ALERT: Type IV Radio Emission
Begin Time: 2014 Jun 10 1230 UTC
Description: Type IV emissions occur in association with major eruptions on the sun and are typically associated with strong coronal mass ejections and solar radiation storms.

Region 2087 has demonstrated the capacity to expel several major flares as it transited the back side of the sun and will move into a more earth-effective position within the next 48 hours. Strong flares with significantly eruptive associated CME’s are possible. Chances for M Class flares is greater than 65% and chances of X-Class flares is over 30%. Stay alert. Disruption of communications, internet, and power can occur with major flaring.
