Good morning sun freaks. Here is an updated look at the visible solar disk on Wednesday. Solar activity is currently at low levels. A handful of C-Flares were observed this morning around region 2164 in the southwest quadrant. Region 2158, the source of an X-Class solar on Sept. 10 which led directly to a strong geomagnetic storm on Sept. 12, is now rotating onto the west limb and out of direct Earth view. A new sunspot formed in the southeast quadrant and was numbered 2168 overnight. It is not considered a threat for strong solar flares at this time. Elsewhere, a pair of alpha magnetic spots rotated into view off the east limb and will be assigned numbers later today. There will remain a chance for at least C-Class solar flares today. No Earth directed coronal mass ejections were observed during the past day.

Geomagnetic Storm and Aurora Watch
Here is the AA space weather update for the morning of September 11th. An updated CME prediction model released by the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center is calling for the plasma cloud generated by the X1.6 solar flare to impact our geomagnetic field by Friday. A moderate to major (G3) geomagnetic storm watch is now in effect. Solar wind speeds are predicted to reach near 800 km/s and could add fuel to another geomagnetic disturbance already in the forecast resulting from an earlier M4.5 flare and CME event.
Sky watchers at middle to high latitudes should be alert this weekend for visual aurora displays. Solar activity during the past 24 hours was strong. The largest and most noteworthy event was without a doubt the long duration X1.6 solar flare observed around region 2158 at 17:45 UTC. The flare was associated with Type II (3750 km/s) and Type IV radio emissions, a 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) lasting nearly an hour and measuring 1300 solar flux units, along with a full halo coronal mass ejection (CME). The majority of plasma appears to have a northward trajectory, however a still significant portion looks to be on line with our planet. Minor (G1) to major (G2-G3) geomagnetic storming will be possible within 24-48 hours thanks to this CME, in conjunction with an earlier CME associated with the M4.5 flare on Sept 9. Another isolated moderate to strong solar flare will remain a possibility today with regions 2157 and 2158 being the most likely source. All other visible sunspots are currently stable. A new sunspot in formation is now turning into view off the east limb, but is not yet considered a threat for strong solar flares. Energetic protons streaming past Earth remain above the minor (S1) radiation storm threshold this morning. These levels could persist until the expected passage of the CME events of Sept 9 and 10.
Stay tuned to our solar activity page for the latest information.
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.
