We are doing something new today, a guest post! Good friend of the website Christian Harris who is a passionate hobby astronomer and very knowledgeable in the field of space weather started a great discussion on Facebook about something which could signal that we are at solar minimum or just beginning with Solar Cycle 25. An intriguing post from Christian that we really wanted to share with you. Below you will find his post. Let us know what you think of Christian's observation!

A fairly large but patchy coronal hole is facing our planet today.

It is starting to become a returning topic here in the SpaceWeatherLive news section: coronal holes that face our planet. Today it's one of those days again: we have a familiar transequatorial coronal hole facing our planet today.

The NOAA SWPC has issued a minor G1 geomagnetic storm watch for this Friday, 19 October.

A coronal hole located on the Sun's southern hemisphere is facing our planet today.

A large coronal hole is facing our planet today. This coronal hole seems to be an extension of the northern polar coronal hole that stretches southward all the way to the Sun's southern hemisphere.

Minor G1 geomagnetic storm conditions were observed earlier this night as a dense solar wind structure arrived at our planet. The north-south direction of the interplanetary magnetic field went mostly southward dipping as low as -9nT and that combined with the equinox effect caused us to reach minor G1 geomagnetic storm conditions at 02:45 UTC. Source is likely the southern extension of the polar coronal hole that you can see in this video from NASA/SDO.

The previous coronal hole solar wind stream gave us some great auroral displays around the world as it caused moderate G2 geomagnetic storm conditions on 11 September which was predicted perfectly by the NOAA SWPC. Today we have yet another coronal hole facing our planet which should be exciting news for aurora watchers at high latitude locations!
A lot of people come to SpaceWeatherLive to follow the Sun's activity or if there is aurora to be seen, but with more traffic comes higher server costs. Consider a donation if you enjoy SpaceWeatherLive so we can keep the website online!
