First Geomagnetic Activity of 2021

Post by Carbon60 » Thu Jan 07, 2021 8:36 am

Hi all,

This was the first geoeffective solar activity of 2021. It's the result of two small CMEs and solar wind from two small coronal holes, but no one is actually very sure of the sequence as they all piled up together and it's difficult to say what's what. Anyhow it's good to see some activity at the start of 2021.
