Solar Activity Picks Up

Space Weather News for August 22, 2014

SOLAR ACTIVITY: Solar activity has been low for weeks. A new sunspot
turning toward Earth could change that. AR2149 announced itself on
August 21st with a M3-class solar flare that sent waves of ionization
coursing through Earth's upper atmosphere. The active region appears
capable of more eruptions in the days ahead. Visit for updates.

MORNING SKY SHOW: Set your alarm for dawn--again. The crescent Moon
is joining Jupiter and Venus to form a bright triangle in the early
morning sky. The best time to look is August 23rd about 30 to 45
minutes before local sunrise. Photos of the encounter may be found at
