One of the largest Solar flares of Solar Cycle 25 is being observed… M 4.4. Class Flare. The Sun erupted with a powerful M4.4-class flare that peaked at 13:11 UTC on November 29, 2020. Any associated coronal mass ejection (CME) with this event will not be Earth directed. The eruption caused a R1 (minor) Radio Blackout LOCATION OF HF FADEOUT: South Africa (RSA)/Central Africa/South America/South Atlantic/ Earth-orbiting satellites detected the biggest solar flare in more than 3 years. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded this extreme-ultraviolet movie of the M4.4 category blast: X-rays and UV radiation from the flare ionized the top of Earth’s atmosphere, producing a shortwave radio blackout over the South Atlantic. The flare also hurled a significant coronal mass ejection (CME) into space. PENUMBRAL LUNAR ECLIPSE: The Moon is about to pass through the outskirts of Earth’s shadow, producing a penumbrallunar eclipse visible from North America and Hawaii. The best time to look is Monday morning, Nov. 30th, around 9:43 UT (1:43 am PST) when maximum immersion creates a subtle but clear gradient of light and shadow across the lunar disk source:www.spaceweather.com
Lewotolo volcano (Lesser Sunda Islands, Indonesia): spectacular eruption
The activity of the volcano continues at high levels. As we mentioned in the last update, the renewed activity began on 27 November characterized by continuing ash emissions.
A powerful vulcanic explosion occurred at 09:45 local time this morning that produced a dense dark ash plume, which rose approx. 13,123 ft (4,000 m) above the summit. (1313 Divine Goddess Portal – 4th portal so my Sacred Condor)
Soon after the eruption, moderately strong ash rain of lapilli set in, covering all surfaces as local people informed on social media.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows and lahars could affect an area of about 2 km distance from the main crater.
Very bright fireball explodes over central Japan
Huge Fireball explodes over Japan
A very bright fireball streaked through the night sky over central Japan at around 16:35 UTC on November 28, 2020 (01:35 JST, November 29).
The object was seen and recorded from many parts of western and central Japan and was accompanied by a rumbling noise.
“It is rare for [shooting start] to be so bright,” Takeshi Inoue, director of the Akashi Municipal Planetarium in Hyogo Prefecture, told Kyodo.
“We believe the last burst of light was as bright as the full moon,” he said.
