G2 Geomagnetic Storm

Post by Carbon60 » Thu Sep 28, 2017 5:51 am

A G2 geomagnetic storm is in progress, fuelling bright equinox aurorae and twitching magnetometers around the globe.

Here are my data from yesterday and overnight showing clearly when the increased density plasma front arrived.

Thanks Alexandra, John and Mark.

One day we'll have a large storm AND a clear night!
