According to Spaceweather.com, Sunspots 1301 and 1295-1296 are crackling with C-flares and there are incoming coronal mass ejections from the Sun.
FOUR CMEs: On Sept. 19th, the STEREO-SOHO fleet of spacecraft surrounding the sun detected six coronal mass ejections (CMEs). Two of the clouds rapidly dissipated. The remaining four, however, are still intact and billowing through the inner solar system. According to analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab, who prepared the movie, one CME should hit Mercury on Sept. 20th at 05:40 UT while another delivers a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field on Sept. 22th at 23:00 UT. All impact times have an uncertainty of plus or minus 7 hrs. High-latitude sky watchers (on Earth) should be alert for auroras when the CMEs arrives.Solar Watcher provides the following Volcano and Earthquake Watch for September 22 to 26, based on the incoming CMEs.
Targeting three separate regions on the solar corona to earth this watch period. First region is Southern Hemisphere 22-27° Latitude, regions best mapped for a strong 7.5 magnitude earthquake are: Antofagasta-Chile, Kermadec Islands, Tonga, South Of Fiji Region or Easter Islands Region. Second area mapped to 56-60° North latitude, best mapped regions are : Kodak Islands, Southern Alaska, Gulf Of Alaska, Alaskan Peninsula Region or the Koryakskiy Russia Region. *Also a watch for volcanic activity in the Kamchatka Peninsula* Third and final region that could see an event 22-26° north latitude zones, areas targeted for a possible 6.5 Magnitude earthquake are: Ryukyu Islands, Taiwan, Yunnan-China or the Myanmar Region. Ionospheric Anomalies are South Japan Islands stretching across to India and Central America also have significant readings. OLR anomalies are this week located : Gujarat-India, Mariana Islands, Christchurch- New Zealand, Arizona/Nevada-America and South of Alaska Region.WATCH: Volcano and Earthquake Watch for September 22 to 26, 2011.
