I've noticed that for the past couple of days that the SDO 48 hour movies aren't being updated from "The Sun Now" page.  Does anyone know why the 48 hour movies aren't being updated?   I refer to these movies a lot to look at recent solar events, and I feel a little 'blind' at the moment. :(

FYI, it just seems to be the AIA movies that aren't getting updated, whereas the HMI movies seem to be updated and working properly.

There's this message on the SDO site " There may be some temporary disruptions in SDO data today. Thank you for your patience!" Might have something to do with it.

You just know that something good is going to happen while my favorite toys are offline.  :)

And of course it did. :)

Not only were there two x class flares today, it looks from that spaceweather.com video that there were two dark filament eruptions as well, one in each hemisphere.

I haven't checked the SOHO and STEREO images yet, but to my 'eyeballing' of that Spaceweather video, it looks like both x class flares occurred along the limb near the active region about the 9:00 position that is coming over the horizon, and I'm not seeing much in the way of an uptick in the higher energy protons from those flares.

The two filaments looked to my eye to have erupted away from the planetary plane, so it looks like we may have dodged four different bullets today. :)

Oddly enough the current data is still available in some locations, and apparently just the last 48 hour AIA movies are offline.  I'm glad too.  It's been a busy week and weekend for solar activity.

It certainly has. I've been busy with other things this week. Typical that solar activity picks up just when I'm not looking! Incoming is certainly getting lively right now.
