Here we go again, the third night in a
row, and the last four out of five
with a solar storm going on.
Planetary K-index
Now: Kp= 4 unsettled
24-hr max: Kp= 6 storm
This is what Europe is
getting right now.

Cold and clear sky`s tonight, very little cloud but not seen any glows,
Though I did see two meteors last night, one gave a good bright streak for a second.

If you live in Britain and there are
clear skies, you got lights in the heavens.

Here we go again, looks good in Europe right now:


G 2
Moderate
Power systems: high-latitude power systems may experience voltage alarms, long-duration storms may cause transformer damage.

Spacecraft operations: corrective actions to orientation may be required by ground control; possible changes in drag affect orbit predictions.

Other systems: HF radio propagation can fade at higher latitudes, and aurora has been seen as low as New York and Idaho (typically 55° geomagnetic lat.)**.

Wow!
X-FLARE! Big sunspot AR1520 unleashed an X1.4-class solar flare on July 12th at 1653 UT. Because this sunspot is directly facing Earth, everything about the blast was geoeffective. For one thing, it hurled a coronal mass ejection (CME) directly toward our planet. According to a forecast track prepared by analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab, the CME will hit Earth on July 14th around 10:20 UT (+/- 7 hours) and could spark strong geomagnetic storms. Sky watchers should be alert for auroras this weekend.

We are going to get it big on the weekend.

If you have clear skies in Brittan right now you may be getting a great aurora show to go along with the Olympics.
