''A shadow of its former self''

A lot of aurora enthusiasts have put 17 May in their agenda as a possible date for some enhanced geomagnetic activity and thus auroral displays. Why? Because that is the date that a coronal hole solar wind stream is expected to arrive at Earth from a coronal hole that managed to give us moderate G2 geomagnetic storm conditions back in April.

Moderate G2 geomagnetic storm

The anticipated coronal hole solar wind stream has arrived at our planet and packed quite a punch. Active geomagnetic conditions (Kp4) were expected but the solar wind conditions were so impressive it was enough for us to reach the moderate G2 geomagnetic storm threshold which equals a Kp of 6 and some impressive auroral displays around the globe.

Coronal hole faces Earth

Solar activity has been pretty boring lately with no solar flares or sunspot regions really worth mentioning. A tiny region with a reverse magnetic polarity did appear a few days ago which likely belonged to the next solar cycle but it faded away pretty quickly. It is normal for sunspot regions from two solar cycles to overlap around solar minimum but it does show we are closing in on true solar minimum. This combined with the fact that we are hardly seeing any sunspots or flaring activity at the moment means this solar cycle might be a shorter than average cycle.

Fake space weather news, coronal hole stream arrives

There has been a lot of crazy news going around about a possible severe geomagnetic storm today and tomorrow which could knock out satellites, cause problems with your health and damage power grids and other total made up nonsense like equinox cracks in the Sun. Fake news if you'd like.
