CME Outbreak
Attached video below by LASCO C2 captures an outbreak of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) during the past 24 hours. Unfortunately for sky watchers, each of these events were either farsided or directed away from our planet. A farsided filament eruption in the southern hemisphere was the source of the latest CME beginning at 09:30 UTC Wednesday morning.

Strong Farsided Flare
A fairly impulsive, yet strong solar flare was observed Wednesday morning around a new active region in formation on the farside of the sun. Another coronal mass ejection (CME) is visible in the latest STEREO imagery. The source of this flare is a little over a week away from rotating into Earth view off the east limb. Something to keep an eye on.

Earth Facing Activity Quiet
Good morning. Attached is an updated image of the visible solar disk on Thursday. Solar activity on the Earth facing side of the sun is currently at very low levels (see story below about farsided activity). Region 1991 continues to decay as it transits the southern hemisphere and is no longer considered a major threat for stronger solar flares. All other visible regions regions remain stable or in a state of decay. New regions 2000 and 2001 were numbered overnight, however both appear to be insignificant at this time. No Earth directed coronal mass ejections were observed during the past 24 hours.
