The last few days of activity......

Post by grimble_cornet » Thu Sep 10, 2015 7:49 pm

Just been having a look at the magnetometer data from the last few days of aurora alerts....
I noticed quite a bit of activity on the screen between Tuesday and Wednesday so here is the trace after processing with Stu's excellent software:

A good record, the Earth - Sun environment has been a bit crackly these past couple of days, some nice aurora shots from places in the UK too.

Solar wind and southerly IMF appear to be the culprits.
