Regional Winner

COTY Regional winner

Wolverhampton Amateur Radio Society winner of the RSGB West Midlands Regional club of the year 2012 and 2013.
2012 was a fantastic year for Wolverhampton ARS, a year of rejuvenation as well as our 90th Birthday. We have seen a steady growth in our membership and with a full program of events we have become more active than in recent years and went on to win the Regional award for 2013.
The West Midlands Trophy is sponsored by web hosting solutions at www.intermip.net

Polar-connected, positive polarity CH HSS sparks geomagnetic storming
A high-speed solar wind stream is affecting our planet today, causing geomagnetic storming. G2 - Moderate geomagnetic storm watch is in effect. Solar wind parameters indicated the onset of a Co-Rotating Interaction Region (CIR) in advance of a polar-connected,...... Read more

Solar filament eruption, possible glancing blow on November 29
A solar filament was observed lifting off the Sun's northeastern quadrant beginning at approximately 04:45 UTC on November 25, 2017. An associated weak Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was observed in SOHO/LASCO C2 and C3 imagery and the analysis shows a potential...... Read more

Remarkable pink aurora outburst over Norway
Over the past couple winters, big displays of pink and white auroras have coincided with spotless suns. The sight is often big enough to make observers wonder if there is a connection, SpaceWeather reports. The most recent remarkable outburst of pink auroras was...... Read more

CIR ahead of CH HSS sparks G1 - Minor geomagnetic storming
A Co-Rotating Interaction Region (CIR) ahead of isolated positive polarity Coronal Hole High Speed Stream (CH HSS) is affecting our planet today, causing geomagnetic storming. G1 - Minor geomagnetic storm threshold was reached 05:30 UTC. Over the past 24 hours,...... Read more

Geomagnetic storms reaching G2 - Moderate levels, spotless Sun
Earth is again under the influence of a recurrent, positive polarity, northern extension Coronal Hole High Speed Stream (CH HSS). G1 - Minor geomagnetic storm level threshold was reached at 11:55 UTC, followed by G2 - Moderate at 19:21 UTC. Over the past 24 hours,...... Read more

Recurrent, positive polarity CH HSS sparks geomagnetic storming
Our planet is again under the influence of a recurring, positive polarity Coronal Hole High Speed Stream (CH HSS), which is causing isolated periods of G1 - Minor geomagnetic storming. Over the past 24 hours, solar wind parameters were indicative of the arrival of a...... Read more

Moderate M1.1 solar flare off eastern limb, old Region 2673 returns
A moderately strong solar flare measuring M1.1 at its peak erupted at 23:28 UTC on October 20, 2017 from the vicinity of old Region 2682, numbered 2673 two rotations ago. Radio signatures suggested and coronagraph imagery confirmed, a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was...... Read more

Powerful double solar eruption beyond the east limb
A powerful double solar flare eruption took place beyond the Sun's east limb early October 18, 2017. The responsible region is now rotating into Earth view and will be visible in a couple of days. The eruption was associated with a Type II (estimated velocity 1...... Read more

Geomagnetic storming reaches G2 - Moderate levels
Our planet is under the influence of coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) for the third day in a row. The geomagnetic field was unstable, with isolated periods of G1 - Minor storm levels during the past two days and then increased to G2 - Moderate levels at 14:59...... Read more

Spotless Sun, CH HSS sparks geomagnetic storms
Geomagnetic storming reaching G1 - Minor levels is underway as our planet moves through a stream of high-speed solar wind. At the same time, solar activity is at very low levels with no flare activity and a spotless Sun on its Earth-facing side. Over the past 24...... Read more

Large solar storm sparks global aurora and doubles radiation levels on Martian surface
When charged particles from a solar storm reached Mars this month, they set off an aurora 25 times brighter and surface level radiation readings twice as high as any previous measurements. An unexpectedly strong blast from the Sun hit Mars this month, observed by...... Read more

G3 - Strong geomagnetic storm levels reached
A recurrent, polar-connected, positive-polarity coronal hole is affecting our planet since September 27. G1 - Minor geomagnetic storm levels were reached at 08:48 UTC on September 27, followed by G2 - Moderate levels at 20:24 UTC and then increased to G3 - Strong...... Read more

CH HSS sparks G2 - Moderate geomagnetic storming
A stream of high-speed solar wind coming from a recurrent, polar-connected, positive-polarity coronal hole is affecting our planet today and causing geomagnetic storming. G1 - Minor geomagnetic storm levels were reached at 08:48 UTC and increased to G2 - Moderate...... Read more

G2 - Moderate geomagnetic storm in progress
Our planet is under the influence of a positive polarity coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) which is causing isolated periods of G2 - Moderate geomagnetic storming. Geomagnetic K-index of 5 (G1 - Minor) geomagnetic storm threshold was reached at 15:43 UTC. G2 -...... Read more

Glancing blow expected from CME produced by major X8.2 solar flare
A major X8.2 solar flare that erupted at 16:06 UTC on September 10, 2017 from Region 2673, produced a powerful asymmetric full halo Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) and it appears one part of it is heading toward Earth. A glancing blow is expected late on September 13....... Read more

S3 - Strong solar radiation storm in progress, active alert for aircrews and pregnant passengers
A powerful X8.2 solar flare erupted from Region 2673, located just around the visible disk, at 16:06 UTC on September 10, 2017, causing R3 - Strong radio blackout and a rapid increase in relativistic proton levels. Within just 3 hours, solar radiation storm reached...... Read more

4th X-class flare: X8.2 erupts from Region 2673, second strongest of the cycle
A major solar flare measuring X8.2 (R3-Strong radio blackout) at its peak time erupted from Active Region 2673 at 16:06 UTC on September 10, 2017. The event started at 16:44, peaked at 16:06 and ended at 16:31 UTC. This is the 4th X-class solar flare from this...... Read more
