The recent spell of low solar activity is over. Sunspots are popping up across the solar disk and one of them, growing active region 11226, is crackling with C- and M-class solar flares. So far none of the blasts has been geoeffective, but this could change as the active region turns toward Earth in the days ahead.

A stream of high-speed solar wind is buffeting Earth’s magnetic field, causing geomagnetic storms around both of our planet’s poles. At this time of year, the midnight sun interferes with the visibility of Northern Lights over Alaska and Scandinavia, but the situation is different on the other side of Earth. Southern Lights were on full display this morning in the dark autumn skies of Queenstown, New Zealand
