This week our Sun displays some explosive growth as we switch from a nearly spotless Sun last week to having at least eight active regions on the Earth-facing disk. Several of these are big-flare players with region 3031 being the one to watch at the moment. In addition, back on the 13th region 3030By Dr. Tamitha Skov
 
Our Sun has been busy, but Earth has remained outside the crosshairs for most of the activity. There are quite a few active regions on the Earth-facing disk, including a X-flare player, but with the exception of a few radio blackouts, these regions have not caused us any lasting effects. In fact, no solar…
 
Our Sun continues to keep us busy with two X-flare players on the Earth-facing Sun along with several filaments poised to erupt as they cross the Earth-Strike Zone. We already have one Earth-directed solar storm on its way to Earth that should give us a glancing blow by early May 9. This solar stormBy Dr. Tamitha Skov
 
This week our Sun dims down a bit when it comes to sunspots, but not solar activity! We have an Earth-directed solar storm on its way. It will be followed by some fast solar wind that will serve to enhance the impact of this solar storm. Aurora photographers should get a good chance forBy Dr. Tamitha Skov
 
After no less than 12 M-class flares,1 X-class flare, 3 Radiations storms, and 2 Earth-directed Solar storms, region 2975 finally rotates behind the West limb of the Sun. If only that meant solar activity would slow down. Nope! Believe it or not, big flares are still on the menu, at least for the next…
 
We have two back-to-back solar storms on their way to Earth! The second one will catch up and slam into the first before they reach Earth, which will intensify the impact when they arrive. Although the storms are expected to be a G2-level, NOAA has issued a G3-level watch for this set of stormsBy Dr. Tamitha Skov
 
We have a big Earth-directed solar storm that has arrived early and is impacting Earth now! We are already seeing some amazing aurora in New Zealand right now with more on the way. In fact, this particular solar storm is unique in that we have an upstream measurement of this storm by Solar OrbiterBy Dr. Tamitha Skov
 
Our star really jumps into high gear now that we have crossed the terminator. Old region 2963 is at it's tricks again on the Sun's farside, this time firing off a spectacular eruption that also included a radiation storm. No doubt an X-flare was involved to, but luckily for us, all of the actionBy Dr. Tamitha Skov
 
This week an X-flare player, region 2936, fires a big M-flare and launches a solar storm while in the Earth-strike zone. Prediction models from NOAA, NASA, and the MetOffice estimate the solar storm will arrive at Earth by February 2. Even though this solar storm is a bit on the slow side, it shouldBy Dr. Tamitha Skov
 
This past week our Sun has been sending us a cornucopia of space weather phenomena, including launching several solar storms in near-Earth vicinity, firing a big solar flare, and showering us with a radiation storm! Luckily, all of their effects at Earth have been either minor, short-lived, or have missed entirely. Back on the…
