SC24: a geomagnetic dud

The latest data confirm that solar cycle 24 is a huge disappointment in terms of geomagnetic activity.

Bright faculae fields

Bright faculae fields appeared near the east solar limb late on 16 May. They belong to the new solar cycle but alas, so far, they have remained spotless.

Active prominences

Dynamic prominences were visible at the solar limb from 8 till 10 May.

Out of the blue

On 20 April, a minor geomagnetic storm ensued following the impact of a slow but potent interplanetary CME. Due to the lack of an obvious on-disk source, the weak nature of the CME, and data gaps in coronagraphic imagery, both the impact and its strength came as a surprize to space weather forcasters.

News from the North

A compact eruption near the northern polar coronal hole took place on 13 April. It was associated with a fast and narrow coronal mass ejection.
