You will only get e-mails when there is significant activity like the example above when big solar flares erupt, space radiation storms are triggered, ... . If you did not confirmed your e-mailadress, you will not receive these messages. You can or may not place messages on the list as this is only for alerting the subscribers of notable events.
Do note that, during strong solar activity and geomagnetic activity, you can receive much e-mail from the alert system!

Disclaimer - can not be held responsible for sending too many mails that you might see as spam messages. In times of high solar activity there could be more alerts then usual. By subscribing you confirm that you want to receive these notifications of solar and auroral activity.


I want to:
Current data suggest that it is not possible to see aurora now at middle latitudes
The maximum X-ray flux of the past two hours is:

Auroral activity

High latitude 60%
Middle latitude 0%
Low latitude 0%
Minor Severe
High latitude 25% 25%
Middle latitude 5% 1%
Predicted Kp max 3


A lot of people come to SpaceWeatherLive to follow the Sun's activity or if there is aurora to be seen, but with more traffic comes higher server costs. Consider a donation if you enjoy SpaceWeatherLive so we can keep the website online!
