A partial CME was reported by the CACTus software, time of occurrence May 24 22:36UTC with projected plane-of-the-sky speed of about 408 km/s. The CME was first time observed in the SOHO/LASCO C2 filed of view at 23:12 UTC and in the STEREO A/COR2 field of view at 23:09 UTC. The CME is associated with a C5.2-class flare from newly rotated NOAA AR 3023, peak time May 24 22:17UTC and two filament eruptions around that region. Considering the position of the STEREO A and the orientation of the CME we can conclude that the bulk of the CME will not be Earth directed but a shock arrival cannot be excluded.
A halo or partial-halo CME was detected with the following characteristics: t0 | dt0| pa | da | v | dv | minv| maxv| 2022-05-24T22:36:09.107 | 3.0 | 91 | 156 | 408 | 131 | 220 | 762 t0: onset time, earliest indication of liftoff dt0: duration of liftoff (hours) pa: principal angle, counterclockwise from North (degrees) da: angular width of the CME (degrees), v: median velocity (km/s) dv: variation (1 sigma) of velocity over the width of the CME mindv: lowest velocity detected within the CME maxdv: highest velocity detected within the CME
There are seven active regions on the visible solar disc. NOAA ARs 3010 and 3011 having rotated off and NOAA AR 3023 and 3024 having rotated on visible disc. Over the past 24 hours, solar flaring activity has been low, with the flare of the largest X-ray output the C5.2-class flare, peak time May 24 22:17UTC, from NOAA AR 3023. For the next 24 hours, C-class flares can be expected with M-class flares remain possible. The C5.2-class flare was associated with two filament eruptions observed in AIA 304 data on the Eastern limb and a partial-halo CME (reported by the CACTus software) with time of occurrence May 24 22:36UTC with projected plane-of-the-sky speed of about 408 km/s. The CME was first time observed in the SOHO/LASCO C2 at 23:12 UTC and in the STEREO A/COR2 at 23:09 UTC. Another CME can be observed in STEREO A/COR2 on May 25 04:09UTC and SOHO/LASCO C2 at 04:00 UTC. Around that time some activity can be seen around former NOAA AR 3016, but it is not evident that that was the source region. For both CMEs it is currently believed that the bulk will not be Earth directed but a shock arrival cannot be excluded. The greater than 10 MeV proton flux was at nominal levels and is expected to remain so in the next 24 hours. The greater than 2MeV electron flux was just under the 1000 pfu threshold over the past 24 hours. It can be expected to be about threshold the next 24 hours. The 24h electron fluence was at normal to moderate levels and is expected to be at normal to moderate levels in the next 24 hours.
Over the past 24 hours, the magnetic field values fluctuated between 2 and 9nT, while Bz had values between -6 and +6 nT. The solar wind speed fluctuated around 430 km/s. The interplanetary magnetic field phi angle was predominately on the positive sector (away from the Sun). Effects from its high speed stream of what looks like an elongated coronal hole that first crossed central meridian on May 23 can be expected to start arriving over the next 24 hours, lasting for a number of days. Over the past 24 hours, geomagnetic conditions were quiet, with one unsettled period May 25 07:00-08:00UTC (K Dourbes=3). Over the next 24 hours, quiet to unsettled conditions can be expected.
The SIDC monitors the level of solar activity from the photosphere to the corona with ground based instruments located in Uccle and Humain.
To avoid the disturbing or blocking effect of the Earth atmosphere, EUV observations of the solar corona need to be made from space...
We monitor and forecast solar variability to provide information services to society and industry about the influence of space weather and climate.
Data processing is necessary to extract relevant information for research studies, whereas data distribution and visualization are part of ROB open data policy.
Modelling of Solar phenomena allows scientists to test theories and to predict Space Weather phenomena and their impact on Earth.
The SIDC shares and expands its expertise through interaction with both upcoming and experienced researchers.
