Solar Wind Arrives

Post by Carbon60 » Wed Mar 22, 2017 7:10 am

The expected fast flowing solar wind has arrived, sparking aurora and twitching magnetometers around the globe, including my own here in the north west of England.

The effects are quite weak currently. We'll see what happens over the coming days.

Thanks for looking.
