04.16.13 - The CME impact on April 13 was weak but it still produced high latitude aurora. The sun emitted a mid-level flare, peaking at 3:16 a.m. EDT on April 11, 2013 accompanied by an Earth-directed CME.
03.17.13 - Friday's fast moving CME has reached Earth and sparked a mild geomagnetic storm. Will higher latitude skies be turned green for St. Patrick's Day?
03.13.13 - A coronal mass ejection (CME) began at 8:36 p.m. EDT on March 12, 2013, and may pass by three NASA satellites: Spitzer, Kepler and Epoxi. A second CME began at 6:54 a.m. EDT on March 13, 2013 and may pass Earth.
03.05.13 - A blended SDO image of an erupting solar filament earned second place in Wikimedia Commons’ “Picture of the Year 2012” contest.
02.20.13 - Over the course of Feb. 19-20, 2013, scientist watched a giant sunspot form in under 48 hours.
02.09.13 - A Coronal Mass Ejection was released by a long duration solar flare early on February 9, 2013.
02.07.13 - In the evening of Feb. 5, 2013, the sun erupted with two coronal mass ejections or CMEs that may glance near-Earth space.
02.06.13 - NASA Goddard scientists headed to Annapolis on Feb. 1, 2013, for Aerospace@Annapolis, an annual overview of the aerospace industry held for the benefit of Maryland state lawmakers.
01.31.13 - A small, Earth-directed Coronal Mass Ejection erupted early this morning.
01.30.13 - The public is invited to a free event on Feb. 13 to experience 'Our Eruptive Sun: The Causes and Consequences of Space Weather,' by Dr. Phillip Chamberlin, Research Astrophysicist in the Solar Physics Laboratory at Goddard.
01.24.13 - One of the two slow-moving ejections from Jan. 23 is Earth-directed. In the past, CMEs of this speed have not caused substantial geomagnetic storms.
01.14.13 - On Jan. 13, 2013, at 2:24 a.m. EST, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection or CME. The CME left the sun at speeds of 330 miles per second and is expected to impact Earth around Jan. 16.
01.03.13 - NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured this solar eruption on Dec. 31, 2012, as it rises and falls with the grace and polished movement of a ballet dancer.
11.24.12 - On Nov. 23, 2012, at 8:54 a.m. EST, the sun released an Earth-directed, slow-moving CME. This is the third Earth-directed CME since Nov. 20.
11.22.12 - On Nov. 21, 2012, at 11:24 a.m. EST, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection or CME
