Fast flowing solar wind arrives

Post by Carbon60 » Sat Jan 28, 2017 6:44 pm

Hi all,

Fast flowing solar wind from a coronal hole has arrived, sparking beautiful aurora and twitching magnetometers around the globe, including my own here in the north-west of England.

There's a second one following close behind, so further geomagnetic unrest and auroral activity is to be expected in the coming days.

Good luck, if you're in a good viewing location.

Noticed redding of the sky due to an aurora last night near Augusta, Ga. USA

Thanks Alexandra. The next few days should be interesting, as yet another large coronal faces Earthward.
