Yet another G1 geomagnetic storm

Post by Carbon60 » Wed Feb 01, 2017 6:51 am

If you're in a region where generally you can view aurora, look out tonight as Earth has entered yet another fast flowing solar wind stream (>700km/s), so bright aurora are highly probable. The arrival of the geomagnetic storm can easily be seen on my magnetometer chart, below.

Given the size of the coronal hole (see Spaceweather.com) the effects are likely to be around for a few days yet.

Thanks for looking.
