Top News of the Day:

2014-10-30 14:26 UTC  12192 Departing - Solar Activity in Decline

Active Region 12192, the largest region since November 18, 1990, is essentially now out of view.  The full tally of solar flare activity to date is 35 R1-R2 events and 6 R3 or greater events.  Remarkably, Region 12192 did not produce any radiation storms or significant Earth-directed coronal mass ejections (CMEs) during its transit across the visible disk.  With this region now on the limb or slightly behind, the threat of Earth-directed CMEs is essentially gone.  However, continued flaring is still possible as the loops high above this region will be visible for several days.  In addition, a radiation storm is still possible should another significant eruption occur.  Beyond that, only small spots pepper the disk at this time, in stark contrast to just a week ago.

Website Change Ahead! (Updated 10/21/2014)

Due to performance issues observed during today's attempted deployment of SWPC's new website, we have delayed that deployment while investigating further. It is SWPC's goal to ensure the highest level of functionality and performance when the site change is made. Additional updates on schedule will be provided as they become available. When the site change is implemented and will link to the new website that is currently in final beta release at For full details, please see the new site.
