CNN reports near miss solar flare

CNN reports that “earth dodged a cosmic bullet” on September 10. We experienced the most energetic series of cosmic flares in decades, which did temporarily block high-frequency radio communication and degraded performance of the GPS network. However, the reporter points out it could have been worse, as there was not a coronal mass ejection (or CME).

Read the CNN article at: You can also read more on our website about CMEs, as well as single event upsets, which explain the effects on communication and GPS experienced during the solar flare.

Better yet, come talk to us about CMEs, single event upsets, and our solutions. Lucid Circuit will be attending the Global Venture Summit in Los Angeles, CA from September 30th through October 1st.


Shortly thereafter, Lucid Circuit will be attending the Defense Innovation Summit in Tampa, FL on October 3-4.

Upcoming Solar Storm on 6th and 7th of September 2017

The geomagnetic storm watch for the 6 and 7 September, 2017 UTC-days has been upgraded to G3 (Strong). The G3 Watch is in anticipation of the expected arrival of a coronal mass ejection (CME) that took place in association with an M5 flare (R2-Moderate radio blackout) observed on 4 September at 2033 UTC (1633 ET). Current analysis and forecasts reflect CME arrival late on 6 September, 2017; with CME effects continuing into 7 September. Keep checking our SWPC website for updates to the forecast.
