G1 Solar Storm 25th July 2016

Post by Carbon60 » Tue Jul 26, 2016 8:22 pm

Minor G1 solar storm from fast flowing solar wind.

The results continue to compare very favourably with Intermagnet professional data. :)

Maybe more to come as the CME (from AR2565/2567) may give Earth a glancing blow over the next day or two.

Thanks for looking.

Good data, Mike.

Derek....you can always have a go! You must have lots of open space there with no risk of EM interference. It would also give a southern hemisphere view of such events.

Thanks Alexandra :)
