A minor radio blackout happened today. These mild events can cause slight deterioration of high-frequency radio communication on the day side of Earth. The flare associated with this blackout was an M2.3.

The Sun has been rather subdued today and yesterday, and will probably be that way tomorrow. The coronal hole continues to rotate away from us. The two major current sunspot groups (2480 and 2483) haven't been causing any trouble.

There were level one radio blackout conditions in the past twenty-four hours, though there are none at this time. The sizable complex AR 2497 will be visible at least for the next forty-eight hours.

There were level one radio blackout conditions in the past twenty-four hours, though there are none at this time. The noticeable 2497 and the barely-there 2500 will be visible another two to three days. 2501 is rotating into view.

Take a look...
