  1. Today
  2. I would like K-index data (which I think I've located on the NOAA servers) and Geomagnetic data as close as possible to the UK, at least daily, both in JSON format. I'd like to pull data from these as frequently as they're updated. I'm new to the data, but am looking for figures most likely to vary daily.
  3. Yesterday
  4. It all depends on what specific data you are looking for but it should be available on NOAA's servers. Some data comes in .json form other in .txt.
  5. Last week
  6. I'm looking for the most suitable live data (in JSON) to use for tracking Solar & Geomagnetic activity. I'm pretty new to space weather, and I've found http://services.swpc.noaa.gov/products/ but not sure which of the multiple data sources to focus on. I'm in the UK, so need to know which data sources are best for this part of the globe. A 15-minute update (or less, if available) would be useful.
  7. Lady Aurora Lord Thylacine and the Enchanting Emu

    CME 15-16 Feb 2018 Pay attention when the ISS passes over from the right (west) side of aurora. Lord Thylacine makes his entrance. Midnight to dawn - east coast Tasmania, Australia Enjoy the show [wiki] "...Thylacinus cynocephalus) was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. It is commonly known as the Tasmanian tiger (because of its striped lower back) or the Tasmanian wolf. Native to continental Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea, it is believed to have become extinct in the 20th century..." LadyAurora LordThyalacine EnchantingEmu_v2.mp4
  8. CME Math

    I'll post an image on roughly what I think the stages of CME impacts are. There are 3 CMEs, the latest CME, the CME on September 7th, and the CME from the final X-Class flare that arrived on the 12th. There are the velocities, density, and IMF total strength and Z component for each CME. If a CME hits and it is a leading edge, then we can get a decent idea on when the shock will start to come in. Subtracting the launch time from the arrival time, multiply that by the square root of pi/2, add that to the launch time and you have the time of around when the shock will start. With the CME at the bottom we were only hit by the shock just about as far as you can get from the leading edge.
  9. CME Math

    From what I see from the numbers, we took a hit from the leading edge and both time points I had ended up being shock points shock points instead of the first point being a leading edge point. If it's noticeable, I think the shock following the leading edge should hit at some point over the next several hours and shortly after that the solar wind will start to decrease.
  10. CME Math

    Not yet, but I'm thinking that might be what was causing some small differences in some of the first graphs I've made on this project. I want to get through all of the new data this year but so far I've been really busy. I'm waiting for this current CME though to see if we are getting a direct hit or side hit to try and backtrack it.

    Does your equation in any way take into account the current ambient solar wind speed

  14. CME Math

    This latest CME looked clear enough to get the needed points to try predicting the time this morning and now looking at the model from the SWPC, the times look like they are fairly close. Launch: 2/12/2018 00:30Z P1: 9:00Z P2: 15:00Z PDif: 6:00 P3: 12:00Z LaunchDif: 11:30Z Multiplier: 5.1 (Multiplier 3) Travel: 2 Days, 10.65 Hours Arrival: 2/14/2018 11:00Z If I read the CME correctly, the first point was the leading edge on the bottom right of the C3 imagery. What I think happened to the second point is the CME started folding at the shock behind the leading edge of the CME making it a shock point.

    Leuke en informatieve video! We hebben het intussen gedeeld op onze Poollicht.be Facebook pagina en dit topic vastgeprikt zodoende het goed zichtbaar blijft voor iedereen.

  21. 774 solar event x class what if carrington event x45

    The strength of a solar radiation storm or geomagnetic storm doesn't say all too much about the strength of a solar flare. High M-class solar flares can in theory cause the same mayhem as a high X-class solar flare but of course, stronger solar flares in general cause stronger space weather effects. It also depends how eruptive a solar flare is. We have had impulsive X-class solar flares that didn't cause any kind of noteworthy space weather effects. The X-ray emission strength of a solar flare never tells the whole story. For solar radiation storms, the location of the solar flare is also very important when it comes to how many protons are able to reach Earth. These protons follow the general direction of the Parker Spiral. The 774 event can't be 60 times stronger than the 1989 event. You do the math. The solar flare scale works like this: X1 is 10 times stronger than M1. X10 is 10 times stronger than X1. X100 is 10 times stronger than X10 and 100 times stronger than X1 . I don't think it is possible to accurately estimate the strength of a solar flare that took place such a long time ago but... well I have no idea. I'm not a scientist.

  23. 774 solar event x class what if carrington event x45

    http://scienceheathen.com/2012/12/01/doomsday-solar-flares-20-times-stronger-than-any-ever-known-from-the-sun-possible-one-likely-hit-the-earth-in-774-ad-research-finds-2/ this article says 60x 1989 Quebec, which is listed as X15. so how big was 774 event? Can't find the X number https://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/03/12/solar-proton-event-seen-in-tree-ring-records/ this one says 7-10x 1989 Quebec, which is still huge. But how does it scale on X scale?
  24. 774 solar event x class what if carrington event x45

    http://www.21stcentech.com/charlemagne-event-774-775-ad-caused-solar-storm/ yes, the year was 774. strongest known SEP event ever recorded by man in last 11K years. ice cores and tree rings. Estimated at 10-20x Carrington event. What X # does that make it? https://www.nature.com/articles/srep45257 meant strongest SEP of the Holocene
  25. 774 solar event x class what if carrington event x45

    I am unfamiliar with the 774 event. Which date was this solar flare? You mean the year 774?
  26. i am not a mathematician or scientist, but love studying earth endangering events of all kinds. I see the carrington event might have had a x45 magnitude. i see online that the 774 event might have 10x to 20x stronger. what x number would that make the 774 event?
  27. SpaceWeatherLive is proud to present it’s brand new version of the website! For the last few months we’ve been very hard at work behind the scenes rewriting (literally) all of the pages to improve the whole website in many ways. Together with all the improvements in speed, code and a bunch of other stuff we also got a modernised look and feel for the whole site. Another thing you’ll notice is that we have dropped the wing Kp in the alerts on the site as it’s pretty unreliable. As replacement we use observed Kp index of NOAA when threshold is reached. Another new site alert will be coronal holes, we’ve tweeted those for a long time but now it’s also displayed on the site. Our new coronal hole page is also finished and can be found under the solar activity menu. There’s a lot more to discover, we have made lots of small and bigger changes everywhere so browse around to discover them! SpaceWeatherLive is now available in eight languages, thanks to the hard work of volunteers over the world that provided the translations. We now made it easier to translate our website and to maintain it. If you like to help out in improving a language or you want to provide a whole new language, contact us and we’ll get you going. We still have some more ideas that we’re working on that require some more time and testing but that’s for future updates. As with all major updates, stuff can go wrong. If something is broke or isn’t displayed like it should, please let us know in the comments! PS.: with all optimisations for a website for the future, we made some sacrifices like dropping support for ancient browsers (like IE8+9 and iOS<7).
  28. Downtime Thursday January 18th

    Tomorrow, Thursday January 18th, there will be a planned downtime of our website starting from 15:00 UTC. This maintenance downtime is needed to fix the spectre And meltdown issues and is done at node level from our service provider. The expected maintenance downtime will be one hour.
  29. solar wind stream data

    I didn't know about that dscovr portal site! thanks! I'll see if I can get it to work
