Solar wind continues to blow

Post by Carbon60 » Thu May 10, 2018 7:16 pm

A wide gash in the solar atmosphere has been spewing fast flowing solar wind for five days now, sparking G1/G2 solar storms and beautiful aurorae.

Here's a visual summary of the geomagnetic impact as detected by my magnetometer:

Things are beginning to settle down now as the hole rotates from view around the western limb.

Thanks for looking

Very interesting. I am still debating with me if I install one or not at the end of this year.
