NASA - Big Sunspot 1520 Releases X1.4 Class Flare With Earth-Directed CME

CME Arrival Results in Aurora Show

Sunspot region 1520 — an class flare erupted from the center of the sun, peaking on July 2012 at PM EDT. It erupted from Active Region 1520 which rotated into view on July Credit: NASA/SDO/AIA

This new global view and animation of Earth’s city lights is a composite assembled from data acquired by the Suomi NPP satellite. The data was acquired over nine days in April 2012 and 13 days in October 2012. It took 312 orbits to get a clear shot of every parcel of Earth's land surface and islands. This new data was then mapped over existing Blue Marble imagery of Earth to provide a realistic view of the planet.

A NASA visualization of the 1993 summer wind patterns that caused that year's Mississippi floods: "The arrows indicate wind trajectories, while color indicates wind height. The length of a line equates to wind speed (stronger winds get longer lines). Black arrows trace the low-altitude winds that carry moisture, the winds most relevant to the 1988 drought and 1993 floods. These winds are about 1,500 meters (4,900 feet, 850 millibars) above the surface. White arrows are winds at 5,400 meters…

Huge Solar Flare to Hit Earth Today, Disrupting Power and Communications

Video: Shock waves travel across sun after solar flare on Tuesday

A powerful sun storm—associated with the second biggest solar flare of the current 11-year sun cycle—is now hitting Earth. The potentially "severe geomagnetic storm," in NASA's words, could disrupt power grids, radio communications, and GPS as well as spark dazzling auroras.

MAJOR SOLAR FLARE (UPDATED): Big sunspot has unleashed another major flare. This one is the strongest yet, an eruption on March at UT. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme UV flash:
