Sun Online. Solar activity, 28-Aug-13

Solar activity was quiet, featuring no C-class flares in the past 24 hours.

Solar wind speed increased to around 450 km/s which is generated by a coronal hole connected to Earth on August 23d to August 25th. It was associated with a current sheet crossing.
Currently the geomagnetic conditions are quiet and are expected to remain so for the next 48 hours. On the end of day 3 (August 30th) active conditions are expected due to a new coronal hole currently connected to Earth.

Sun online. Solar activity. 27-Aug-13

Solar activity has been low with no C-class flares in the past 24 hours.
There is a very small chance for a C-class flare from AR NOAA 11835.

Solar wind speed is at around 340 km / s.
Geomagnetic conditions where quiet and are expected to remain so for the
next 48 hours. A new coronal hole is connected to Earth with possibly a fast solar wind stream and this will result in a current sheet crossing. The estimated arrival time of this high speed stream is around August 30th and might result in active geomagnetic conditions.

An interesting fact about the Sun:

In 1859 there was registrated the most powerful geomagnetic storm
(also it calls as Solar Superstorm).
