Solar activity during the past 24 hours was moderate with the M4.5 solar flare around region 2158 being the largest observed X-Ray event. Only minor C-Flares have been detected ever since. Region 2158 remains magnetically complex and is still a threat for another isolated moderate to strong solar flare. The other sunspot of interest, region 2157 in the southern hemisphere, is currently producing low level C-Flares and will remain a threat for an isolated M-Flare. All other visible sunspots are stable for the time being.
Also in today's daily alternative news report is Hummingbird027's end-time update.
Good morning. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Monday. Solar activity is currently low. Regions 2157 and 2158 both continue to undergo changes in sunspot configuration and magnetic complexity. Each will remain a threat for an isolated M-Flare. All other visible regions are currently stable. No Earth directed coronal mass ejections were observed during the past day.
24 hr Summary: Solar activity was at low levels. Region 2157 (S14E24, Ekc/beta-gamma-delta) continued to produce mid-range C-class flares. The largest was a C7 flare at 07/1943 UTC. Region 2157 had slight to moderate growth over the period within its intermediate spot area and still retains a SE-NW inversion line within its much larger trailing spot complex. Region 2158 (N15E35, Dkc/beta-gamma-delta), although relatively quiet recently, appeared to have slight rotation of its positive leader with penumbral fluctuations along its delta. No Earth-directed coronal mass ejections were observed during the period.
Forecast: Solar activity is expected to reach moderate (R1-R2 (Minor-Moderate)) levels with a chance for X-class (R3 or greater) flare activity over the next three days (08-10 Sep). Regions 2157 and 2158 are the most likely sources for significant flare production.
Also in today's report is Hummingbird027's end-time update and prophetic news for Sept. 8th.
Good morning folks. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Sunday. Solar activity declined to low levels with only C-Class flares detected. Region 2159 produced a C7.5 flare at 02:04 UTC and was associated with a non Earth directed coronal mass ejection (CME). A number of low level C-Flares are being observed this morning around region 2157. Both regions 2157 and 2158 continue to undergo changes in formation and magnetic complexity as they rotate into a better Earth facing position. An isolated moderate to strong solar flare will remain a possibility during the next 24-48 hours.
A weak shock passage observed on Saturday did not lead to a noteworthy increase in geomagnetic activity. Geomagnetic storming is unlikely.
Also included in today's report is today in history for September 7th.
Good morning. A somewhat busy day on the space weather front, so I will provide you with this solar update. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk. New regions 2160, 2161 and 2162 were all assigned today. Each are not considered a threat for strong solar flares at this time. Another new region is now just beginning to turn into view off the east limb. We will get a better look within the next 24 hours.
The C8.0 solar flare Saturday morning around region 2157 appears to have been responsible for a coronal mass ejection (CME) as seen in the attached image by LASCO C2. It does not appear to be Earth directed.
The Solar X-Rays are active once again. Region 2157 produced a moderate M1.1 solar flare at 17:09 UTC. The active region continues to evolve and will remain a threat for additional moderate to strong solar flares.
ACE spacecraft data showed an increase in solar wind speed on Saturday morning and it could be related to an expected glancing blow CME impact. A geomagnetic sudden impulse was also detected at 15:25 UTC. Increased geomagnetic activity will be possible in the hours ahead. More updates to follow if required.

Daily Alternative News Report for Thursday September 4, 2014
Good morning. Solar activity has picked-up in the past few days. The Sun has shot multiple M-class flares from several new regions that are just rotating onto the East limb and the solar filament we were watching, did indeed erupt. We now have a solar storm on the way to Earth, which could bring us more aurora as well as disruptions in GPS and traffic services, satellite phone and internet, and problems with ham radio communications. Also from the recent activity, we are experiencing some elevated radiation, which may peak at the NOAA S1 storm level around September 6 with the impact of the coming solar storm. Learn how this activity might affect you and see what else the Sun has in store for us this week.
Solar activity is at low levels this morning and has been that way since the M2.5 event on Wednesday. Newly numbered region 2157, now turning into view off the southeast limb, appears to contain several small to mid sized sunspots. This region is likely a threat for at least an isolated M-Class event.
The source of a major solar flare on Sept. 1, likely an X-Class, and cause of a radiation event that bombarded the STEREO Behind spacecraft, is now beginning to turn into view off the northeast limb. So far only the leading edge of a large spot is visible. We will get a better look at it during the next 24 hours. Elsewhere, region 2153 did show some growth during the past day, but is otherwise stable this morning. All other regions, including newly numbered regions 2155 and 2156 remain stable for now. No Earth directed coronal mass ejections were observed during the past day.
