X-flare creates “magnetic crochet”

Reprinted from Space Weather News for March 30, 2014

X-FLARE:  The magnetic canopy of sunspot AR2017 erupted yesterday, March 29th, producing an impulsive X1-class solar flare.  Ionizing radiation from the flare produced electrical currents in Earth’s upper atmosphere and a ripple in Earth’s magnetic field detected by magnetometers across the dayside of our planet.  Read more about this rare “magnetic crochet” and the possibility of more X-flares this weekend on today’s edition of http://spaceweather.com. 

SOLAR FLARE ALERTS:  Would you like a call the next time the sun erupts? X-flare alerts are available from http://spaceweathertext.com (text) and http://spaceweatherphone.com (voice).
