Two non earth-directed coronal mass ejections are now visible in the latest SOHO/LASCO coronagraph imagery.

A northern hemisphere coronal hole is facing our planet today.

A large southern extension of the northern hemisphere polar coronal hole is facing Earth today.

Solar activity has plunged to very low levels with the disappearance of sunspot region 2673.

The X8.2 coronal mass ejection has arrived. A weak impact was observed at 19:29 UTC with a minor increase in the solar speed, density and the total strength of the interplanetary field (Bt). This is without a doubt the glancing blow arrival of the X8.2 coronal mass ejection as the low energy protons measured by ACE/EPAM peaked at the moment of impact, a classic sign of a CME arrival.

A southern extension of the northern hemisphere polar coronal hole is facing our planet today. It is the same coronal hole that caused minor G1 geomagnetic storm conditions for four days last month.

Yesterday's X8.2 (R3-strong) solar flare from sunspot region 2673 was one of the most spectacular solar flares we have ever seen. Not only was this the second strongest solar flare of the current solar cycle, it also launched an extremely fast and broad coronal mass ejection. What a way to say goodbye! Let's hope it survives its 2 week journey on the far side of the Sun!

Sunspot region 2673 departs in style! The region is now behind the western limb but it still managed to produce it's fourth X-class solar flare: it erupted with an X8.28 (R3-strong) solar flare that peaked at 16:06 UTC.

The X9.3 coronal mass ejection has arrived at Earth and boy does it pack a punch! While the M5.5 coronal mass ejection turned out to be a huge dissapointment, the X9.3 coronal mass ejection is much stronger than expected and we are seeing some of the strongest geomagnetic storming of the current solar cycle.
