Latest Space Weather News
Aurora Watch / Bz South
December 7, 2022 @ 11:00 UTC (UPDATED)
A geomagnetic storm watch will be in effect for the next 24-48 hours when a coronal hole stream is predicted to reach Earth. It should also be noted that at the time of this update, the Bz component of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) is tipped sharply south (-13 nT). This could provide a boost to geomagnetic activity in the short term. Aurora sky watchers at higher latitudes should remain alert.

UPDATE: The minor (G1) storm threshold was reached at 13:04 UTC (Dec 7). A watch for Moderate (G2) conditions will be in effect until 18:00 UTC.

WARNING: Geomagnetic K-Index of 6 expected
Valid From: 2022 Dec 07 1325 UTC
Valid To: 2022 Dec 07 1800 UTC
Warning Condition: Onset
NOAA Scale: G2 - Moderate

Space Weather Update
December 4, 2022 @ 23:10 UTC
Good evening. Solar activity during the past 24 hours was at low levels with a number of minor C-Flares detected. Most of this activity was centered around AR 3155 and 3156. With the observed spot development, the solar flux index on Sunday climbed to 144. AR 3155, 3157 and 3158 showed the most development today and will be monitored. Big AR 3153 continues to quietly rotate into a better Earth facing position, but is for the most part stable. There is currently estimated 20% chance for an isolated moderate M-Flare.
