A small sunspot region has rotated into view on the south-east limb. No big deal you say? Well... it might be a sign of things to come! More on that later. We also have a southern hemisphere coronal hole facing our planet today which could spark some high latitude aurora in a few days time. Plenty to talk about today!

A large coronal hole is facing our planet today. Most of you might remember this coronal hole as it is the same coronal hole that faced our planet on 28 August and 24 September. This coronal hole has always been a reliable source for geomagnetic storm activity a few days later. What can we expect this time around?

As we have reported before, the real time solar wind monitoring satellite Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) which is located at the Sun-Earth L1 point is being kept in a safe hold at the moment. A glitch in its position system triggered the safe hold and that means it does not transmit any data back to Earth. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel for DSCOVR.

A familiar coronal hole is facing our planet today. You might remember this transequatorial coronal hole because it faced our planet at the end of August and caused moderate G2 geomagnetic storm conditions on 31 August and minor G1 geomagnetic storm conditions on 1 and 2 September.

Happy birthday to the SpaceWeatherLive website and mobile application! Yes, our app celebrates its first birthday today and our website has completed lap number 11 around the Sun (well tomorrow to be more precise but who's counting) and what better way to celebrate than with an update and the introduction of two highly requested features!

A T-shaped coronal hole is facing our planet today and sending a high speed solar wind stream towards our planet. High latitude sky watchers be alert for aurora in a few days time!

A small but interesting southern hemisphere coronal hole is facing our planet today.

The NOAA SWPC has issued a minor G1 geomagnetic storm watch for 5 August (Monday) due to a coronal hole that is facing our planet today.

Its summer in the northern hemisphere and that means many of us are enjoying a well earned vacation. However, the same thing can be said about our Sun. She is taking it very easy with pretty much no noteworthy eruptions or other solar events to talk about during the past few weeks. We did have the brief appearance of a sunspot region that belongs to Solar Cycle 25 but it disappeared as quickly as it appeared. Make no mistake, we are likely still at or close to solar minimum. That said, we do have something to talk about today as we unexpectedly reached minor G1 geomagnetic storm conditions yesterday and today!

It's been a little while since we've last had some news for you. Ever since sunspot region 2740 and 2741 disappeared from the earth-facing solar disk, solar and auroral activity has truly tanked back to solar minimum levels with no solar events or geomagnetic activity worth mentioning. That changes today however as a coronal hole is facing our planet today.
A lot of people come to SpaceWeatherLive to follow the Sun's activity or if there is aurora to be seen, but with more traffic comes higher server costs. Consider a donation if you enjoy SpaceWeatherLive so we can keep the website online!
