a solar flare that was observed by nasa space observatory on tuesday could affect satellite and power on earth for the next couple days. some of the material may impact the earth. The Space Weather Prediction Center said the event is "expected to cause G1 (minor) to G2 (moderate) levels of geomagnetic storm activity tomorrow, June 8, beginning around 1800 GMT." it's not going to cause major problems. read the rest of it on the link to show the full article of it.

here are some videos


Dramatic i wouldnt say that.
The CME wasnt earth directed, so we will only see minor effects in the coming days 10-11 june.
a simulation can be viewed here

That link doesnt show the CME from this morning anymore, apparently there was just another eruption on the far side of the sun.

this is the forecast from the NOAA



The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on day one (08 June) and on the beginning of day two (09 June). Midday on day two, active to minor storm levels are expected as the CME, associated with today's M2/2N flare from Region 1226, becomes geoeffective. With the arrival of this CME, there is a slight chance for major storm periods at high latitudes. On day three (10 June), as the effects of the CME continue, active levels, with chance for minor storm periods, are also expected


They say geoeffective, lets wait on those aurora pics

Is that why it has been so dramatically hot for june. I keep watching the TV News to see what they say but they are silent.

no it's not. i think it's because it's close to summer.

Is it hot out there - heatwaves? I live in Florida so I pay no attention. I do watch sun activity - I am trying to determine if there is a correlation to earth movement.

Perhaps the largest since SDO has been in orbit (about a year) but not the "largest on record".
