Daily Alternative News Report for September 3, 2014
Good morning. Solar activity during the past 24 hours was low. A number of low level C-Class solar flares are being detected off the southeast limb. Old region 2144 and company are now beginning to turn into view. We will get a better look at the sunspots during the next 24 hours. Region 2152, now transitioning into the southwest quadrant, showed some decay within the central portion of the group. All other visible regions are currently stable. There will be an increasing chance for a moderate solar flare as active regions rotate into view.
Energetic Protons streaming past Earth continue at elevated levels, but fall short of the minor radiation storm threshold. The increased particle levels is a direct result of major flare activity behind the east limb on September 1.
A long duration solar flare peaking at M2.5 was observed at 13:54 UTC Wednesday morning. The source of this eruption is a new active region approaching the southeast limb. A weak coronal mass ejection (CME) became visible in the latest LASCO C2 imagery and as expected due to the limb location, was directed to the east and away from our planet. We will get a better look at the active region during the next several days.
Also in today's report, we have world history they refuse to teach in schools, and a live NASA video chat about landing on the 'rubber-ducky' asteroid.
