This week our Sun’s bark is worse than its bite with multiple filaments launching partly towards Earth, but only light impacts are expected. Aurora photographers at high latitudes may be the only ones to catch a show this week. Despite this lackluster performance, we have at least nine numbered regions in Earth-view, which ensures the solar flux will remain in the mid-100s, so amateur radio operators should enjoy great radio propagation on Earth’s dayside. GPS users should also enjoy decent GPS reception this week as the risk for big flares and radio blackouts remains pretty low. Learn the details of the multiple filament launches, catch up on aurora highlights from recent solar storms, and check out the dark region lurking on the Sun’s farside this week!
