Space Weather Alerts, Watches and Warnings
Issue Time: 2021 May 09 1502 UTC
ALERT: Type II Radio Emission
Begin Time: 2021 May 09 1431 UTC
Estimated Velocity: 407 km\/s
Description: Type II emissions occur in association with eruptions on the sun and typically indicate a coronal mass ejection is associated with a flare event.

Issue Time: 2021 May 09 1416 UTC
SUMMARY: 10cm Radio Burst
Begin Time: 2021 May 09 1354 UTC
Maximum Time: 2021 May 09 1354 UTC
End Time: 2021 May 09 1355 UTC
Duration: 1 minutes
Peak Flux: 130 sfu
Latest Penticton Noon Flux: 76 sfu
Description: A 10cm radio burst indicates that the electromagnetic burst associated with a solar flare at the 10cm wavelength was double or greater than the initial 10cm radio background. This can be indicative of significant radio noise in association with a solar flare. This noise is generally short-lived but can cause interference for sensitive receivers including radar, GPS, and satellite communications.

Issue Time: 2021 May 07 1927 UTC
ALERT: Type IV Radio Emission
Begin Time: 2021 May 07 1907 UTC
Description: Type IV emissions occur in association with major eruptions on the sun and are typically associated with strong coronal mass ejections and solar radiation storms.

Issue Time: 2021 May 07 1926 UTC
ALERT: Type II Radio Emission
Begin Time: 2021 May 07 1902 UTC
