Webcams page

The webcams or all-sky cameras page has been updated a little while ago. Broken URLs were removed and new ones are added. We also ranked the cameras according to where they are in the world. Click on the country you like and a drop down will collapse and show you the cameras. Do you know of a northern lights/aurora camera that isn't listed. Let us know!

Magnetometers page

The magnetometers page was also updated with some little more background information about the magnetometers and the CANadian Magnetic Observatory System was added. TheCANadian Magnetic Observatory System also replaced the North American stack plot on the front page.

Under the hood we added some tweaks to ensure that large graphs are displayed better on smaller resolutions.

Happy new year everyone!Read our news post for a quick look back at 2018.

We ended 2018 with making work of some refactoring and now the live graphs will load dynamically upon loading the site, no need to refresh the page anymore!

Another New year's gift is something new in our app (available on Android and iOS). In the menu 'Auroral activity' when you click on 'Auroral oval' you'll get a big map to view the latest ovation model. It’s now easier than ever to view the ovation model on your mobile device.

STEREO page changes

We have made some minor improvements to the STEREO page.

STEREO is a mission consisting of two space craft in an orbit around the Sun. STEREO Ahead is in an orbit slightly faster than Earth's orbit and STEREO Behind is an orbit slightly slower than Earth's orbit around the Sun and this causes the space craft to slowly drift apart.

STEREO Behind has unfortunately suffered a malfunction back in 2014 so there is currently no real time data coming from this space craft. We removed anything related to STEREO Behind from the STEREO page as its unnecessary to feature a set of blank images. Should NASA be able to recover STEREO Behind in the future we will of course bring back the data from STEREO Behind to the STEREO page.

New on the page is a graph with Real Time Solar Wind data from STEREO Ahead. Just like DSCOVR, the STEREO mission has instruments on board (PLASTIC and IMPACT) to measure the composition of the solar wind and strength/direction of the interplanetary magnetic field at the space craft. Due to the location of STEREO Ahead, this data is of great use to see what kind of space weather conditions we could expect from any incoming coronal holes days in advance. We use this data a lot when we estimate the strength of any incoming coronal hole solar wind streams when writing the news.

Minor tweaks but we hope you enjoy these changes.

Users of the Safari browser on a Mac desktop with MacOS Majave 10.14.4 (released March 26th) will notice that the main website can look a bit different when dark mode is enabled on your Mac. When you enable dark mode on your Mac (system preferences --> general), the website will be turned into dark mode (except the community forum).

A new page has emerged on SpaceWeatherLive, GOES imagery has got it's own page and will be accessible through the "Solar activity" menu on the main site. https://www.spaceweatherlive.com/en/solar-activity/solar-images/goes

For Estionian users we also have good news. The Esteonian translator, @AhtoA, has been busy with translating the help section and the main jhelp page is now done with several help articles. Go check those out and a big cheers to @AhtoA for his work.

We've made some improvements to the dark mode in the app, it should be way faster now and more responsive. The dark mode for Mac OS also got further improvements for better graph display.

The solar flare page got a little extension with the backup satellite data being added to the graph. If you've wondered why this graph is dark, this screenshot was taken in Safari oen a Mac with dark mode enabled.

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?

We’ll look into it! Added to our project board.

Only the app has a switch. The site only enables dark mode when Mac OS has it enabled and can be turned on/off there. Other browsers currently don’t have it build into it because it’s a new web standard.

Secondary GOES satellite data is now being archived daily so you'll be able to see the secondary X-ray flux there too. Max flux of the day is also added to the graph. As an extra desert we've added 4 years of secondary x-ray data to the archive... think that should be enough :P

Something I will never forget... ;)

SpaceWeatherLive is a multilingual website available in 11 languages. Most are up to date, except Polish and German. Starting today we'll start testing our latest code update involving alerts that are sent to many users who have our SpaceWeatherLive app installed or have subscribed through browser alerts on the site. We'll be sending alerts into different languages besides English. First up are Dutch, Spanish, Estonian, French and Swedish and more languages will follow when our voluntary translators contribute their translation. Although we tested our changes a lot, there could be some bugs when alerts are going out, but we hope that's not the case and everybody will receive them.

We just released a big update for our SpaceWeatherLive app on iOS and Android!

- You can now select which space weather alerts you want to receive.
- Tired of the ads? Remove them with an in-app subscription. With your help we can keep our services online and keep you up to date with the latest space weather events.
 
more information in the news section.

On Android we fixed a few bugs after the initial 1.1 release where the app could crash on older devices after purchasing  subscription. 

For iOS we updated the app to match iOS 13 dark mode settings. The app now adapts to the system setting of iOS. If you enable dark mode on iOS, it will be like that in the app as well! If you set it to automatic on iOS, the app will switch automatically as well. How convenient 👍
