The EarthSky sun news team reported on a solar superstorm ongoing on May 11, 2024, with a significant geomagnetic storm reaching extreme levels. The storm was caused by multiple coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and high solar activity, making it the largest geomagnetic storm in the past 20 years. Auroras were visible across Europe, New Zealand, the Americas, and even as far south as Mexico and as far north as Chile and Argentina. More auroral activity was expected due to additional CMEs and high-speed solar wind approaching Earth. The sun also produced numerous X flares and M flares over the last 24 hours, with AR3664 being the lead flare producer. The forecast indicated a high chance of more flares in the next 24 hours. Geomagnetic activity was at severe levels, with auroras reported worldwide. The summary also included updates from previous days regarding solar activity, including X flares, M flares, CME impacts on Earth, and potential for more geomagnetic storms and auroras.
