Problem with Kiruna Magnetometer

Question

The Kiruna Magnetometer showed a deflection of -7900nT for today on 1000UTC. Is there something wrong with the sensor? -7900nT would be a G5 Storm with a Kp Index of 9+.

There was probably an issue at the IRF which manages the Kiruna magnetometer. It's not the first time it had glitches and we already had some checks running to prevent this issue. Unfortunately there was another error which ended up in displaying a graph with incorrect values. It seems that the IRF doesn't really check the data feed for errors and false positives so we will do some further checks on new data so we hope we can prevent this in the future and hope that IRF does fix their issues.
