Geomagnetic Activity 20th-22nd November 2020

Post by Carbon60 » Sun Nov 22, 2020 3:43 pm

Hi all,

For anyone interested, we're inside a stream of fast flowing solar wind which is producing mild geomagnetic activity. Here are my data over the past three days illustrating the uptick.

There might be a chance of seeing aurora today for those lucky enough to be in the right place.

Good luck....!

Thanks for looking.

Stu.

Thanks, Mark. Hopefully some CME driven geomagnetic storms to come with things pepping up :)

We can only expect more CME activity as we head into this new solar cycle. Let's hope we get impact and some nice aurora as a result.
