The solar events of the last 24 hours:
- Solar activity was eruptive featuring 1 C-class flare (C2.6) originating from AR NOAA 11836. Both AR NOAA 11835 and NOAA 11836 have a possibility in producing M-class flares.
- A partial halo CME Coronal Mass) was detected by LASCO C2 on August 31st around 20:48 UT which could be assiociated with the C2.6 flare. This CME is mainly westward directed (possibly only a glancing blow) and due to the relative slow speed of 400 km/s will probably not have any influence on geomagnetic conditions.
- Current solar wind speed is around 550 km/s.
- Currently, on the Sun there are 3 active regions with sunspots.
Geomagnetic conditions where quiet in the past 24 hours, but the CME of
August 30th 2:48 UT might still arrive and potentially result in minor
storm levels (K=5). The CME of of August 29th 06:00 UT is expected to
arrive with a shock on September 2d in the evening resulting in active
