June geomagnetic summary 2017

Post by Carbon60 » Sun Jul 02, 2017 10:02 am

Nothing hugely impressive this month as the Sun continues to head towards solar minimum. AR2661 started off with a few pops and crackles, but fizzled away with no more than a few very minor and hardly geoeffective flares. The solar wind accounted for most of the activity this month, such that it was. There were no storms greater than G1 and in some cases the effects were so weak that the resulting aurorae were only apparent through photography, being far too weak to be seen by the naked eye.

Good work
Example of a non active period
Has its use
Even if nothing more than to act as a baseline for comparison

A thorough summary of a rather quiet month, Stu.
Thanks for the explanation of the physical processes forming the bumps and wiggles in your tracing!
