    When I grabbed the paddles, I could swear they were laughing at me.

    woo hoo. just in time for Field Day. Might affect our plans for all QRP.

    Bottom edge of image is solar equator at the eastern limb.

    The emerging region on the eastern limb may be the last for the next several days. If this new region continues to grow, it will be in a geo-effective position around 6-26-16. The region maybe numbered 2556 in the coming hours.

    Math error in previous post. Date should read 6-23-16 for new region.

    If you would like to see the storm develop in real time the MDSR Scanning Seismograph is up and working in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

    The RF Seismograph image will update every 10min and monitor conditions on 80, 40, 30, 20, 15, 10m.

    View the real-time band conditions from this link:

    All the best;

    Solar Activity

    Numerous CMEs
    were observed off the North through SW limbs over the past
    24 hours. The first CME was observed in LASCO C2 imagery off the NW
    limb, first visible at 19/1325 UTC, and was associated with a C1 x-ray
    event observed at 19/1158 UTC from Region 2558. Analysis of this
    slow-moving CME, and subsequent WSA-Enlil model output, suggested there
    was no Earth-directed component. Additional CMEs off the W through SW
    limbs were observed in coronagraph imagery between 20/0200-0800 UTC, all
    related to eruptive prominence activity. A well defined CME was first
    observed in LASCO C2 at ~20/1600 UTC with a NNE trajectory from the Sun
    center. This event was also visible in STEREO A COR2 coronagraph
    imagery, as well as STEREO A EUVI 195, as a wave depicting a clear
    source location on the far side of the Sun - taking the transient away
    from Earth.

    This thread started June 21 Father's Day 2015. 27 pages and over 27,000 views later this thread comes to an end as it started with multiple CME's at the same time.

    My purpose was to highlight examples from the point of view of a solar astronomer. Hopefully, this will help you to identify potential events and the complexity of Space Weather Forecasting when viewing solar optical and measurement data.

    You can bookmark any of the 27 pages for future reference. Many of these examples will be posted on the website under Space Weather Training in the coming weeks.

    The October 2016 issue of the ARRL QST magazine will feature an article about the 2017 US Solar Eclipse. I am going to provide a project for this event and devote my time to this endeavor. You can follow this project on the GRAPE website: from this date forward.

    My very best and thanks to all who have viewed and commented on this thread. I have learned from each of you as well.
