Increased activity from the Sun this week has us on the edge of our seat as we wait for the arrival of an overdue Earth-directed solar storm. We’ve also had six M-class solar flares over the past 24 hours, most of them from region 2322 as it started to rotate out of Earth view. The other region that shot one M-class flare is on the East limb, but has yet to give us any more big flares. We will get a better look at this region in the next few days as it rotates more fully into view. Although these flares have affected the amateur radio operator bands over the last day, things should be quieting down, until the storm hits.
