Geomagnetic Storms Rumble On.....

Post by Carbon60 » Thu Mar 30, 2017 5:34 am

Magnetometers continue to twitch as the fast flowing solar wind from a large coronal hole continues to blow, disrupting Earth's magnetic field and sparking aurora around the poles.

Here are my data from March 27th through until this morning (30th), clearly showing the arrival and continuing 'rumbling' as the wind blows through.
