New Bright Signs of Cycle 25 | Solar Storm Forecast 04.07.2020

This week the Sun continues to show more signs of Solar Cycle 25. We have two new bright regions at high latitudes (a hallmark of the new cycle). One region in Earth-view has been firing B-class flares, which is a good indicator that activity is continuing to rise. The other region on the Sun’s farside should rotate into Earth-view in a few days, and should help keep the solar flux boosted into the low 70s. Along with the new bright regions, we also have a coronal hole that will rotate into the Earth-strike zone in just less than a week and it will send us some fast solar wind that could bring more aurora to high latitudes, possibly mid-latitudes too for a short while. Learn the details of the new cycle activity, catch up on aurora photos from recent solar storms, and see what else is in store!
