Space weather dishes up meteor showers and solar flares





Posted on October 21, 2012

is passing through a stream of debris from Halley’s Comet, source of
the annual Orionid meteor shower. Forecasters expect ~25 meteors per
hour when the shower peaks on Oct. 21st. No matter where you live, the
best time to look is during the dark hours before sunrise on Sunday
morning. Observers in both hemispheres can see this shower. On Oct.
19th, as Earth was making first contact with the debris stream, NASA’s
All-sky Fireball Network recorded 10 Orionid fireballs over the southern
USA.





On Oct. 20th at 1814 UT, Earth-orbiting
satellites detected a strong M9-class solar flare. The source was a new
sunspot, AR1598, emerging over the sun’s southeastern limb. NASA’s
Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash
(image), which sent waves of ionization rippling through Earth’s upper
atmosphere. More flares are in the offing. NOAA forecasters estimate a
40% chance of M-flares and a 10% chance of X-flares during the next 24
hours. –[b]Space Weather
