  1. I realize it will probably resolve when the new year arrives, but right now the dating in the pop‐over cloud in the graph(s?) goes midday from ”Monday, 30 December 2019“ to ”Wednesday, 30 December 2020“! See https://www.spaceweatherlive.com/en/solar-activity/solar-flares If you stretch the bottom bar out and then travel left to right for today, it goes from ”Monday, 30 December 2019, 20:27 UTC“ to ”Wednesday, 30 December 2020, 00:00 UTC“―???
  2. But what about the different “Long”/“Short”relativity?: If “Long” is more/greater/higher than “Short” for GOES-15, shouldn’t “Long” be more/greater/higher than “Short” for GOES-16, too, although the spread may be a bit different? Also, they (SWPC) say “The GOES-16 & 17 XRS data values will read about 30% higher than older GOES satellite measurements...”: If you look at the values, aren’t they actually less than the GOES-15 values? Isn’t it because they set up new pages (in JSON no less! P=) ?: --Old: ftp://ftp.swpc.noaa.gov/pub/lists/xray/ --New: https://services.swpc.noaa.gov/json/goes/primary/ https://services.swpc.noaa.gov/json/goes/secondary/
  3. There is a discrepancy with SpWxL’s presentation of GOES-15 Long data: Putting it into common form, GOES-15L = A8.48 (SWPC-graph & SpWxL) 14L = A3.94 (SpWxL-DE09 archive & SWPC-txt) 15S = A3.28 16S = A0.697 = a6.97 16L = A0.231 = a2.31 (SWPC & SpWxL) It appears that “A3.94” on the daily archive is actually GOES-14 Long! I suspect that SpWxL is pulling its data from ftp://ftp.swpc.noaa.gov/pub/lists/xray—? The SpWxL values given for 10Dec appear to be even more wacko! @1332z: GOES-15L = A8.24 (SWPC-graph) = A8.29 (SpWxL & SWPC-txt) 14L = A3.88 (SpWxL-DE10 archive & SWPC-txt) 16L = A0.201 = a2.01 (SWPC) = A0.18 = a1.8 (SpWxL-Rolling day) Why the discrepancy with the 15 & 16 Long values? In particular with SpWxL, why is the primary’s graph data between the rolling day and daily archive different? Also, more generally, why is GOES-15 Long > Short, but GOES-16 Long < Short??
  4. No, it is in the clear, https://aip.scitation.org/doi/10.1063/1.5087613 as well as the direct pdf file: http://aip.scitation.org/doi/pdf/10.1063/1.5087613?class=pdf
  5. I likewise did a double take when I saw that, but as http://www.solen.info/solar noted, “(t)he measurement at 20h UT was erroneous (outside the 3% error range) and was therefore replaced by the measurement at 17h UT).” Usually when there is a spike like that it is a “flare enhanced” reading—and there was certainly no flare enhancement yesterday, LOL! So, given the 17:00 value of 69.7 and 69.9 for 23:00, I’d just split the baby and call it 69.8 P=).
  6. Ya know, I was going to suggest adding the secondary data! P=) Are you going to add it to the archive page, too? Also regarding the archive page, why not add the maximum flux for that day, either as a numerical statement (like the background flux) and/or as a line on the graph, at its time location, like you have been doing with the flares, and mark it as "max flux"—and if there is/are flare(s), you can just mark the largest as the "max flux"? Regarding the background, I normally use dark mode (easier on the eyss): Is there a way to add a light/dark background mode option, or just make it a gray background, no matter which mode you are in?
  7. Woop, SWPC appears to be using the GOES-14 data again! P=( X-Ray Archive—Sunday, 14 April 2019
  8. I agree the forums should keep out the environmental-political doomsday conspiracies and related new age pablum, but as I suggested in another thread, given the increased recognition and research to heliobiology (“spaceweather biology”), might it not be useful to corral these discussions into its own forum (something like “Heliobiology”, or if that sounds too abstract, just “Spaceweather Biology”), thus not clouding the other forums's reputations with these sincere but potentially questionable ideas/theories? ########## BTW, is it just something in my settings, or do some replies seem to pin to the bottom as the last reply (such as quietfreedomʼs Monday morning 2am reply, which will probably be still stuck after my reply)?
  9. On that same page is a link to another article (abstract), Effects of geomagnetic activity and atmospheric power variations on quantitative measures of brain activity: Replication of the Azerbaijani studies
  10. Thatʼs referring to the same eNeuro paper....Actually, they have a link to the cleaner, “submitted” version, with all of the figures/images inline (and without that green side banner!): Transduction of the Geomagnetic Field as Evidenced from Alpha-band Activity in the Human Brain (Submitted Version))
  11. SpaceWeather.com posted an article, Can Humans Sense Magnetic Storms?, about that study, including a link to a pdf version of the whole eNeuro paper, Transduction of the Geomagnetic Field as Evidenced from Alpha-band Activity in the Human Brain. One thing I find interesting about the discussion right here, in this forum, is that some have mentioned being Aspergic/on the autism spectrun (I was never diagnosed as being an Aspie, but given my history, quirks and interests, I would say I am definitely—at least mildly—Aspergic...plus I was most certainly classified as ADHD in my grade school years! P=) Given that the nature of autism is that oneʼs brain is wired differently, as well as those on the spectrum are more gastrointestinally sensitive, maybe we are actually physically more heliobiologically sensitive–?
  12. @Sani A. Lehmus: Yup, you donʼt have to convince me—I believe solar-geomagnetic activity was a primary trigger to major eye issues Iʼve had in the past (inflamation), as well as gastrointestinal issues. Ya know, Vancanneyt, given the increased recognition and research to heliobiology (“spaceweather biology”), it might be worthwile to consider adding a heliobiology forum where such research discussion and personal experience and theorizing can take place...just make sure there is a vivid disclaimer on the page that your mileage may vary! P=)
  13. Well, actually, I believe it more literally stands for “p”lanetary. P=)
  14. Another good site is Jan Alvestadʼs Solar Terrestrial Activity Report (“STAR”), which provides a rigorous numerical summary and descriptive analysis, including his own region designations/spot counts, alongside government published data.
  15. Yup, I see the corrected Saturday values (though Wed-Fri is still jumbled, too! P=| ).
