Bogus A4.3 Flare—2 July @ 1300z?

Recommended Posts

What is with that supposed A4.3 flare on 2 July @ 1300z?

     SpaceWeather.Live 02-Jul-2020 X‐Ray Archive

Hovering over that spot, it shows as only a7.5 (“A0.75”), but it is logged under the day’s Solar flares (with no region given) as starting at 12:58 and ending at 13:02, so it doesn’t seem to be a stray spike—?

And if you look at SWPC’s json text data for that time, it  matches:

    a7.45846584...(“Long”/“0.1-0.8nm”);
  [ a8.81776696...(“Short”/“0.05-0.4nm”) ];

Was this just some historical data fluke (i.e., data taken from another date), or possibly a flare on the Far Side that somehow got mixed in with the Facing Side data?

Must be that someone at SWPC had a bad day at the office 😄 we've removed it on our end 😉

But it was logged by SDO in the Events for 2020 Jul 02, so it MUST have happened!

...Right?  P=)  P=)  P=)

Not the first time they had some wrong items in the events ;) when we build our solar flare database and in the years we added events to it we have done many corrections so I’m not surprised 😉
