Cloudy day Slooh observations and three X-Class flares! 5-14-24

Post by DeepSolar64 »

Today was a completely clouded out day with no chance to observe. Slooh stood in for a little while before it went offline for the day and kept me outta a zilch but did not save me from missing a couple of X-Class flares. One around 17:00 UTC hit X8.79!! It was located on or just past the SW limb where the receding AR13664 resides. The SDOAIA304 images also showed some nice post-flare coronal loops there. If it was not for the clouds I would have had one of the Coronados on it :( Checking out the SOHO LASKOC2 image this morning I notice a big outburst of ejected material above the SE limb. This may well predict another massive region preparing to rotate into view!

Below are the Slooh realime Ha images from this morning plus the flare images from the Solar Dynamics Observatory.

Thanks James.
Have you checked out jHelioviewer (see my reference to it under ‘software’)?

You’d have a blast with that for sure.

It sounds like a GONG, KSO or SDO day for you.
