Bogus A4.3 Flare—2 July @ 1300z?


Recommended Posts

What is with that supposed A4.3 flare on 2 July @ 1300z?

Hovering over that spot, it shows as only a7.5 (“A0.75”), but it is logged under the day’s Solar flares (with no region given) as starting at 12:58 and ending at 13:02, so it doesn’t seem to be a stray spike—?

And if you look at SWPC’s json text data for that time, it  matches:

  [ a8.81776696...(“Short”/“0.05-0.4nm”) ];

Was this just some historical data fluke (i.e., data taken from another date), or possibly a flare on the Far Side that somehow got mixed in with the Facing Side data?
