4th July solar storm

Post by Carbon60 » Sun Jul 05, 2015 10:50 am

Nothing too spectacular, but a G2 solar storm is in progress, albeit subsiding now after 600km/s solar winds from a coronal hole arrived and pushed against Earth's magnetosphere late yesterday, as detected on my magnetometers here in the UK.
