The Sun Online and solar activity. August 8, 2014

NOAA AR 2132 produced a C2.2 flare on August 7 with peak time 22:56 UT, the strongest flare in the past 24h. On the same day, NOAA AR 2135 produced a C1.4 flare around 17:28 UT. We expect more flaring at C-class level from these region and possibly also from region 2134. We maintain the warning
condition for proton activity. No earth-directed CMEs were observed. Geomagnetic conditions are quiet to unsettled. We expect a maximum K value of 3 later today and tomorrow under the possible influence of a coronal hole wind stream.
