Jan. 27th, at 18:37 UT (11:37 am Calgary Time) an X-FLARE was released from the sun from departing sunspot 1402. Flares are rated A, B, C, M and X with X class being the biggest and potentially destructive. NOAA forecasters estimate a 15% chance of geomagnetic storms at high latitudes. View animation showing the coronal mass discharge - it will just miss the earth when its edge passes by our planet on Jan. 30-31. The recent M9 class flare on Monday January 23 hit the earth on Tuesday, January 24 producing brilliant auroras in Norway, but only faint aurora in the Calgary area - see article. Stay tuned for updates on this new X2 class flare and be on the lookout for the Aurora between Jab 28 and Jan 31. NOAA forecasters estimate a 30% chance of minor geomagnetic storms on Jan. 30th in response to a possible glancing blow from a coronal mass ejection (CME).
