Sun Emits Mid-Level Solar Flare
The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, beginning at 11:57 p.m. EST on Feb. 3, 2014, and peaking at midnight EST. NASA released images of the flare as captured by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. View News Article (2014-02-05)


NASA Releases Images of X-class Solar Flare
The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 1:48 p.m. EDT March 29, 2014, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured images of the event.  View News Article (2014-04-01)


CERN, eat your heart out? U of A research team helps identify an interstellar particle accelerator
Newly released research in Nature Communications from the University of Alberta has identified the existence of a giant cosmic accelerator above the Earth. View News Article (2013-12-05)


New Sunspots Producing Space Weather
On Jan. 13, 2013, at 2:24 a.m. EST, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection or CME. Not to be confused with a solar flare, a CME is a solar phenomenon that can send solar particles into space and reach Earth one to three days later. View News Article (2013-01-15)


Researchers Identify Driver for Near-Earth Space Weather
New findings indicate that the aurora and other near-Earth space weather are driven by the rate at which the Earth's and Sun's magnetic fields connect, or merge, and not by the solar wind's electric field as was previously assumed. View News Article (2006-12-12)


CME To Pass Earth, Messenger and Juno
On July 16, 2013, at 12:09 a.m. EDT, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection or CME, a solar phenomenon that can send billions of tons of particles into space that can reach Earth one to three days later. View News Article (2013-07-17)


Sun Sends Out Mid-Level Solar Flare
A coronal mass ejection (CME) was also associated with the July 19, 2012 flare. A CME is another solar phenomenon that can send solar particles into space and can reach Earth one to three days later, affecting electronic systems in satellites and on the ground. Initial NASA research models show that this CME is not headed toward Earth, but could impact STEREO-A. View News Article (2012-07-20)


New instrumentation helps scientists better predict space weather
New instrumentation and observing techniques, being developed by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, are helping scientists better understand and predict space weather. View News Article (2006-12-12)


Coronal Mass Ejection Headed Toward Mercury and Venus
On July 1, 2013, at 6:09 p.m. EDT, the sun erupted with a coronal mass ejection, or CME, a solar phenomenon that can send billions of tons of solar particles into space that can affect electronic systems in satellites.  View News Article (2013-07-03)


Sun Emits a Mid-level Flare
On Nov. 13, 2012, the sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 9:04 p.m. EST. View News Article (2012-11-14)
