A shock in the solar wind arrived this morning around 6:00 UTC. While not very strong (solar wind speed at impact 350km/s) it is hard to pinpoint the source of this shock wave.

We are currently under the influence of a coronal hole solar wind stream. The solar wind speed has picked up to 550km/s but there hasn't really been much of a geomagnetic response as the solar wind density and interplanetary magnetic field values have been rather mediocre.

We are currently in a very quiet period when it comes to space weather with no significant sunspot regions, solar flares or geomagnetic storms to report about but fortunately we still have the occasional coronal hole to lighten up the mood... and skies!

A huge surprise last evening as solar activity unexpectedly reached moderate level thanks to an M1.11 (R1-minor) solar flare that took place behind the east limb. The solar flare peaked at 23:28 UTC on 20 October 2017.

|M-class solar flare||1%|
