  2. Tutorialvideo: Hoe maak je een foto van het poollicht

    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.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. solar wind stream data

    Because it isn't anymore on the SWPC json data feed, it isn't available anymore. Our live data gets overwritten, only the last 12 hours are in there because normally the rest would be in our archive. ACE data is available (see attachement) but also has a data gap, but not that big. DSCVR data can be obtained from https://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/dscovr/portal/index.html#/ 20180115_ace_swepam_1m.txt 20180115_ace_mag_1m.txt
  6. solar wind stream data

    What I can say is that our live data is handled differently from the archived version. Meaning that if NOAA decides that data is invalid and removes it from their files, it will still be in our live data. In the archived version that isn’t the case. So source is same, but method is differently
  7. solar wind stream data

    Thank you for your report. Well look into it more detailed this evening. Live data is relatively unfiltered and not finalised data. Normally SWPC does some post processing which causes differences in archived data and real-time data.
  8. Help translate SpaceWeatherLive into your language

    We are currently in the works of refactoring how the translations are done, because of that we can't send you a translation pack at the moment. We hope to finish this refactoring soon after some testing and get the word out. When finished, we'll post a message on the forum and news with updates on this.

    Hi Alexander, welcome to the forums and thanks for showing interest into translating into Russian. We've send you a message on the forum to get you started!
  10. Discrepancy In X-Ray Data?

    You had it right al along I just overlooked it 😱. We've added the missing data last night (UTC+1) so the archive is complete again.
  11. Discrepancy In X-Ray Data?

    In the software we use html-tag limitation is not available, the creator found that the most users have enough with a WYSIWYG editor. So out of safety, we don't enable it by default. Archive of the last few days is available. Due note that after midnight not all options are available but are added during the night when NOAA updates their stuff.
  12. Discrepancy In X-Ray Data?

    We've seen this before too and don't really understand why NOAA suddenly uses secondary data instead of their primary source. Normally if there are troubles with primary data, it is announced that they would switch to secondary but when solar flare strengths are added we'll get situations like this. Sometimes NOAA isn't really correct . PS.: Source mode is not available for safety reasons (if a spammer gets through, it could do plenty of things wrong with html injection )

    Maybe some more input you can utilize for your equations: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-04546-3
  14. Changelog/Featurelog

    We are excited to launch a new feature today as an enhancement of our Coronal Hole alerts: As these tweets are very popular, it had to get it's own dedicated page on our website. While that page is still in development, we are thrilled to launch the first major feature of that page: the Coronal Hole map. Besides the SDO image where you can see coronal holes, it isn't always that easy for beginners to see the holes itself, so that's why we developed our own coronal hole maps, updated every hour and shows you where the holes are. On the new page you'll always get a good look on the coronal holes and when to expect effects from them on Earth. The page will be extended when we launch our next major version of the website!
  15. Changelog/Featurelog

    An issue was reported on the site about the solar cycle page. It seems that the SWPC uses outdated sunspot numbers that are different from the international sunspot number. As such, we have replaced that data with the real international sunspot number and updated the corresponding graphs. We'd like to thank the Leibniz-Institut für Atmosphärenphysik e.V. for reporting this to us and helped us improve our website.
