NEW SUNSPOT AR1492: NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the movie during the late hours of May 25th. According to the 3D Sun app, another active region is approaching just behind this one and could boost solar activity even more when it emerges in the days ahead. Stay tuned.WATCH: Solar Update and Forecast - May 27th, 2012.
CME TARGETS MARS: The magnetic canopy of sunspot AR1492 erupted on May 27th at 0551UT, producing a long-duration C3-class solar flare and hurling a coronal mass ejection (CME) toward Mars. Analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab say the cloud will hit the MSL spacecraft (containing Mars rover Curiosity) on May 31st at 0100 UT followed by Mars itself about 10 hours later. - Space Weather.
UPDATE: Volcano and Earthquake Forecast - May 30th - June 5th, 2012.
Targeting an unnumbered Coronal Hole on the solar corona that is situated at (45-48°N latitude), this feature may be indicative of a swarm of 5 magnitude earthquakes or a possible 6.0 magnitude earthquake in one of these listed locations during this watch period: Off The Coast Of Oregon, Kuril Islands, Puget Sound-Washington, East Kazakhstan or Romania. Time Frame suggests May 29-31. A Huge Coronal Hole about to rotate onto the disk represents a potential 8.2 magnitude earthquake towards the end of this watch. Deep characteristics with symmetry to the earth indicate an area to (11-21°N) Latitude would be most at risk. Possible locations that may be in line for this earthquake are: Guam, Mariana Islands, Luzon Philippines, Taiwan or the Andaman Islands. Time Frame June 3-5. - Solar Watcher.WATCH: Volcano and Earthquake Forecast - May 30th - June 5th, 2012.
