Looks like it just recently happened. I'm not that familiar with reading the chart, but it is either a X1 or 2.


For some reason I am having a hard time finding the link for the site I usually go to for reports. I am sure there are several here that can add more info.

I can't tell by the images if it's earth directed, but it looks like there is likely a CME from it.

Update: X1 strong X1 flare with CME, possible earth glancing (thanks grandherecy

It will be a glancing blow as it was directed away from us. Still you may want to keep your tinfoil in hand as this seems like a ramp up begins.

Info on the flare

This is a good info page for all of your Solar Needs

Thank you for the info and the site. I can spend a lot of time pouring over that one!

How cool would it be to see the auroras on Halloween night??

I talked to our cable guy at work and said due to flares there have been some problems and will be problems with service. I though he said for the next few weeks to expect some inconveniences.
Xfinity by the way.

The sun sure does seem to be awake again....

Here are a couple sites to see interference levels in fairly decent time to help.

Australian TEC Map


Reading those for a basic usefulness is simple. The higher the area you're in reads on the chart? The more interference and reception problems you can expect to have. The top of the chart is about where I'd expect even CB Radios to be loud with background noise, if not useless.

That's a lay perspective of course... Some HAM Radio operators on here can probably do better than I for explaining it. I believe they use those maps in a practical way.
