Sun Activity Triggered an Aurora Alert!

Direct hit expected from a Huge CME!

A huge, long-lasting solar flare took place near the large sunspot region AR2960 on March 10, 2022.

It produced an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection (CME). The estimated arrival time for charged particles from the sun is 11:35 UTC on March 13.

So look out for a possible auroral activity increase on the night of March 12-13th for observers in the Western Hemisphere.

This will be a direct hit of Earth by a large CME. The resulting geomagnetic effects have the potential to provide a beautiful auroral show.
