The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has issued an alert for an M5.7 X-ray flare (see swpc.noaa.gov/news/r2-mod-hf-radio-blackout-and-s2-mod-solar-radiation-storm-17-july-2023 for details). This solar flare has resulted in radiation levels that have exceeded our operational thresholds for imaging operations across Planet's satellite fleets. Planet plans for events like this and we have implemented our safety procedures to ensure our satellite fleet is not impacted. During this time imaging will not be available. Like any space weather event, the length can be unpredictable so we will be posting updates to Planet's Status Page when available (at a minimum every 24hr) until this is resolved.
