Enhanced Solar Activity: 28 Solar Flare Eruptions Within One Week

Since October 23, 2013, there have been 28 solar flares erupting through space in a week (24 M-class and four X-class flares) and U.S. NOAA has issued four radio blackout warnings in two days. Are there more on the way?

At last, our Sun is currently reaching the peak of its 11-year solar cycle!

More than two dozen solar flares have erupted from the Sun in the past seven days, catapulting radiation towards the Earth that could potentially play havoc with global communications. The recent solar flare activity has also been accompanied by several coronal mass ejections (CMEs).

Moreover, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued four radio blackout warnings in the past two days after solar weather suddenly turned turbulent.

Storms are rare during solar minimum, but as the sun nears solar maximum, large storms occur several times per year. And we are reaching the peak… We will probably have nice auroras these next days.
