POSSIBLE FARSIDE SUNSPOT: The Earth-facing side of the sun is almost blank, but the sunspot count might soon increase. NASA's STEREO-A spacecraft is monitoring an active region on the farside of the sun. It might be a sunspot. We'll soon find out as the region rotates into view over the sun's NE limb a few days from now.

RE-INCARNATED SUNSPOT: Two days ago, decaying sunspot AR2806 disappeared. Today... it's back. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the sunspot's re-incarnation on March 7th:

The growing sunspot is 10 times bigger than before, and is crackling with minor B-class solar flares. Bigger explosions are possible if the sunspot's growth continues apace. Stay tuned!

ASTEROID APOPHIS FLYBY: Mark your calendar: April 13, 2029. On that Friday the 13th eight years from now, asteroid 99942 Apophis will fly past Earth so close you can see it with your naked eye. No, it won't hit, but you can be excused a frisson of dread watching it pass by.

This weekend, Apophis made a "pre-flyby" of Earth about 16 million km away, the closest it will be before the big event in 2029. Alberto Quijano Vodniza of Pasto, Colombia video-recorded the space rock on March 7th:

THE SOLAR WIND CONTINUES TO BLOW: For the 3rd day in a row, Earth is inside a stream of solar wind blowing ~500 km/s. Some beautiful auroras have been seen around the Arctic Circle. The wind is expected to ebb later today with another stream due to arrive on March 12th or 13th.

RARE RED AURORAS: It's not easy for Earth's atmosphere to make red auroras. Even longtime Arctic photographers and tour guides rarely see them. Yet, on March 10th, there they were:

https://imgur.com/EVULaSh


Rayann Elzein sends this picture from Utsjoki in the Finnish Lapland. "The red auroras looked pale white to my unaided eye, but a quick exposure with my camera revealed their true color."

What's so tricky about red? The action, if you can call it that, takes place more than 150 km above Earth's surface. At that high altitude, oxygen atoms excited by solar wind slowly spit out red photons. Emphasis on slowly. The radiative lifetime of the transition is 110 seconds--an eternity at the quantum scale. The atoms must remain undisturbed that long to produce their red light.

Perhaps that's why red auroras often appear when conditions are quiet. "The solar wind speed last night was quite low and there was no expectation of a geomagnetic storm," says Elzein. Tonight is expected to be quiet as well. Red auroras, anyone?

A Co-Rotating Interaction Region (CIR) is Expected to Hit Earth's Magnetic Field - Solar Storm Watch

A minor G1-class geomagnetic storm is possible on March 13th when a fast-moving stream of solar wind hits Earth's magnetic field. The gaseous material is flowing from a southern hole in the sun's atmosphere.

But that's not all. Later today, a co-rotating interaction region (CIR) is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field. CIRs are transition zones between slow- and fast-moving streams of solar wind.

Solar wind plasma piles up in these regions, creating density gradients and shock waves that can rock Earth’s magnetic field much like a coronal mass ejection (CME).

CIRs are a way for the sun to spark auroras without explosive solar activity. All that’s required is a fast solar wind stream brushing up against a slower one. In the transition zone, thick rivulets of plasma press magnetic fields together, creating strong shock-like structures that mimic CMEs.

Indeed, some forecasters refer to co-rotating interaction regions as “mini-CMEs.”

Arctic sky watchers should be alert for auroras this weekend.

THE GREAT QUEBEC BLACKOUT: They call it "the day the sun brought darkness." On March 13, 1989, a powerful coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth's magnetic field. Ninety seconds later, the Hydro-Québec power grid failed. During the 9 hour blackout that followed, millions of Quebecois found themselves with no light or heat, wondering what was going on?

"It was the biggest geomagnetic storm of the Space Age," says Dr. David Boteler, head of the Space Weather Group at Natural Resources Canada. "March 1989 has become the archetypal disturbance for understanding how solar activity can cause blackouts."

https://imgur.com/QpMEAIP


Above: Sunspot 5395, source of the March 1989 solar storms. From "A 21st Century View of the March 1989 Magnetic Storm" by D. Boteler.

It seems hard to believe now, but in 1989 few people realized solar storms could bring down power grids. The warning bells had been ringing for more than a century, though. In Sept. 1859, a similar CME hit Earth's magnetic field--the infamous "Carrington Event"--sparking a storm twice as strong as March 1989. Electrical currents surged through Victorian-era telegraph wires, in some cases causing sparks and setting telegraph offices on fire. These were the same kind of currents that would bring down Hydro-Québec.

"The March 1989 blackout was a wake-up call for our industry," says Dr. Emanuel Bernabeu of PJM, a regional utility that coordinates the flow of electricity in 13 US states. "Now we take geomagnetically induced currents (GICs) very seriously."

AURORAS IN THE USA: As predicted, a solar wind stream hit Earth's magnetic field on March 13th, sparking a G1-class geomagnetic storm. Northern Lights spilled across the Canadian border into the USA. MaryBeth Kiczenski sends this picture from Eagle Harbor, Michigan:

https://imgur.com/FvqFeKz


"What a showing last night around 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time," says Kiczenski. "The pinks and greens were visible to the naked eye. I lost my entire train of thought. I cheered. I may have shed a tear, even. I'm shocked I managed to get this in focus with all the excitement! Best I've seen to date."

Auroras were also sighted in Minnesota and Wisconsin. There's nothing special about auroras in the USA, per se. Canadians had an even better show. But auroras touching the "lower 48" are a sign that Solar Cycle 25 is intensifying. Today, it's Minnesota and Michigan; in a few years, perhaps, California and Texas. Stay tuned!

Geomagnetic Storm
An enhanced solar wind stream ranging between 550-600 km/s is currently causing a geomagnetic disturbance at higher latitudes. The minor (G1) geomagnetic storm threshold was reached at 05:50 UTC (March 14). Visible aurora will remain likely at high latitudes during the next 24 hours once it is dark outside.

Solar Update
Solar activity continues at very low levels with no noteworthy solar flares to report. AR 2809 appears to be growing again in the southwest quadrant, but is not considered a flare threat at this time.
