  1. Hi, yes, I've seen it. Thank you very much for advising and for all the answers. A hug.
  2. Thank you for your answers and for helping me learn more about our king star. a hug.
  3. Little by little I am learning new things, some thanks to the work of this page that is seen that is thrown with passion. Thanks to the creators, administrators and participants for giving birth to this little-explored world of solar activity. In the images we can already see a powerful active zone emerging that will soon face the earth. I think I remember (correct me if I'm wrong) that if the spots emerge near the equator, they belong to the previous solar cycle that still burns fuel and that usually stays longer in low cycles. I understand that this zone belongs to the cycle 24 ?. Apart from this. It seems very active and capable of causing important coronal mass ejections. Where can I find information about the concrete forecast of this active zone, to know especially what days it is estimated that it will be more facing the earth. I still have a lot to learn, because until now my concerns have focused on the earth's climate. But it is precisely knowing and feeling that I have many things to discover, which makes me feel more alive. Thank you very much and congratulations for this wonderful website.
  4. Thanks for your analysis, what I still miss is an official notification about this sensor behavior. I understand that if there is an error that lasts for a long time and that causes a graph to fall flat, there must be an official statement that says the sensor is having problems. Thank you very much for your analysis.
  5. Thanks for your analysis theartist, in my contribution, I was referring to the decrease below the detection thresholds since the end of February 2019. At this time, it goes back above the GOES 15 detection thresholds. I think the next few months will be interesting to see if in general the sun begins to increase its activity, time is what will give the reason to those who think we are facing a possible high minimum or those who think not. What is undeniable is that we do not yet have the capacity to forecast the solar cycles before they begin. We can know something more when they have already begun, depending on their evolution, but today no one can say with the same certainty that a weather forecast at 24 hours as it is going to be cycle 25. Persoally I am expectant and with an open mind to all the information, theories, but I believe that the sun will have the last word. The best we can do is to continue studying and learning from their behavior, with humility, collaboration and joining points, even from the theories that we do not share, which are sometimes what make us follow a new path that opens new discoveries.
  6. Do not worry theartist, thanks for the clarification. Regarding the points of view I think it is fundamental that we have different approaches that make us have more data to compare. You always learn. The best thing is always to think that one can be wrong because it is the first step to have a flexible mind and ready to move forward and be enriched by new information. If we close ourselves in a fixed idea, we will never advance. Debate with different ideas, with serious arguments and respect is the ideal climate for all to grow. A hug.
  7. Yes, theartist, but the fact is that the failures come to light precisely because of the low activity, or that I understand from your article that I had already read. I would not understand that they published an article like the one on March 1, showing themselves so surprised. https://tesis.lebedev.ru/info/20190301.html I understand that they have to adjust the GOES 15, but what I can not find anywhere is a note from NASA that talks about problems in its operation. It would be nice if someone has to post it here. Thanks!!
  8. Very interesting the information that you teach me. Thank you. In my question I am referring specifically to the GOES 15 red graph, 1.0 - 8.0 A. This is the one used on the official website of the LPI RAS laboratory usually to measure the activity of possible flares. When at the end of February its activity fell below detection thresholds, they published a note saying verbatim phrases such as "For several days in the graphics of solar activity, coming from space in real time, instead of the usual dynamic image, a straight line appears, occasionally distorted by small disturbances. The first question that arises in this regard is "is everything OK with the satellite monitors?" It is easy to make sure that the scientific team works without failures, but it happened " impossible ": the level of short-wave radiation from the Sun, which has been at a record low level in recent months, has decreased by about 100 times and has fallen below the sensitivity threshold of the instrument." Currently, it has changed to GOES 14, until the thresholds of 15 are adjusted, which will have to take into account these deep decreases in the future. But who are the Russian scientists who have published the note? Is it a reliable source of information? The LPI RAS laboratory, Russia, is one of the main Russian centers for studying solar activity. In the course of the theoretical and experimental research in the Laboratory, unique data were obtained on the structure and dynamics of the solar corona, the mechanisms of energy release in the solar atmosphere and the spectral and temperature composition of the solar plasma. Laboratory staff conducted the first satellite experiment in the history of the world to observe short-wave solar radiation: for the first time in history the first X-ray photograph of the Sun was obtained. I have been studying the behavior of weather and climate all my life, and for a few years I have been much more interested in the climate of the past, especially the Abrupt Climate Change and its effects on societies. For some time I have been interested in space weather, which I think that in the coming decades it will begin to give the importance it deserves about its effects and interactions on us and our climate. But I have much less experience than you in this matter, for which I thank you for your work and answers. I apologize for my English. And I apologize to the administrator in case this topic does not go here. If you have to move it to another site, I'll understand. I do not want to divert the post.
  9. Hi! thanks for your reply theartist! And one more question. Since the end of February, the flow of x-rays has greatly reduced its activity, to the point of being almost all the time below detection thresholds. I have spoken with the Russian physicists of the LPI RAS laboratory because they are surprised by this behavior. However, I do not see that importance is being given to this in general. What do you think about it that you also have time observing and studying the sun? Can we consider it a symptom that the sun has taken another step in its possible entry into an important period of low activity? Thank you.
  10. Hello, a question, does this zone belong to the cycle belt 24 or 25? Thank you very much for all the information.
  11. Thanks for your reply theartist!!
  12. Hi, thanks for your work. Is very Good. Can this be considered a new sunspot? Thank you.
