Here you'll find plots of the solar wind speed/density and the Interplanetary Magnetic Field (IMF) of the last two hours. These are the first parameters in the predicition of auroral activity. The redder the plots get, the better it is for auroral activity! The Kp-index is a global indicator of auroral activity on Earth on a scale from 0 to 9.
This magnetogram gives you the values measured by the ground station of Kiruna (Sweden, Europa). For middle latitude auroral activity the deflection in the magnetometer data should be more than 1300nT.
EPAM stands for the electron, proton and alpha monitoring and is an instrument on the ACE satellite that measures the electrons and protons that are sent with the solar wind. This is a very useful tool whether the CME is directed towards the Earth and when it will happen.
Everyone wants to see if there are aurora chances so our site gets lots of traffic. But with higher traffic comes higher server costs. Support our project so we can keep the website online!
