Solar activity was eruptive with a C2.2 flare as strongest flare
originating from NOAA Active Region 1828. A faint partial halo Coronal mass ejection (CME) was observed around 5h00 UT. It seems to be associated to a small filament eruption. The CME seems to be travelling mainly to the east with a projected speed of 360 km / s. First
analysis suggests a possible arrival at 25 August at 9h UT, but this will
be further evaluated. Astronoms expect C-class flaring activity to continue. There
is a slight chance for M-class flares, especially from NOAA active regions
1820 and 1827 that currently have a beta-gamma configuration of their
photospheric magnetic field.
Unsettled geomagnetic conditions are expected to continue and return to quiet after 24 hours.
