G1 Geomagnetic Storm December 9th

Post by Carbon60 » Sat Dec 10, 2016 5:51 pm

Fast flowing solar wind from a large coronal hole sparked a G1 solar storm and beautiful aurora on December 9th.

Earth remains within the Windstream, so aurora are likely over the coming days.

Thanks for looking.

No problem, John ;).

A bit of retuning and it will be fine. Hardware is working well.
