Powerful X-Class solar flares hit Earth, cause radio blackouts – largest sunspot seen in 24 years

Solar Flares Earth Bound Sunspot-tep

October 2014 – SPACE - At 17:09 UT (12:09 p.m. EDT) today (Saturday), active region (AR) 2192 erupted with another X-class flare directed at Earth. This is the second powerful eruption in less than 24 hours to be triggered from the large sunspot that occupies the region. Today’s flare registered at X1 on the solar flare Richter Scale, the most powerful class of flare, but weaker than Friday’s X3-class flare.

Further radio black-outs have been recorded on the daytime side of the Earth, but, once again, today’s flare did not generate a significant coronal mass ejection (CME).

There was already a high probability that active region (AR) 2192 was going to erupt with a powerful solar flare, so it came as little surprise when, yesterday, the huge sunspot fired a powerful X-class flare right at Earth.

And we sure did feel its impact.

Four lightbulbs here gave up the ghost yesterday, I wonder if there's a connection.

Great info Smile

Nothing untoward happened here. Perhaps that's because NZ is tucked away in a dark corner!
