Not a lot of space weather news to report about lately but we do have a small coronal hole facing our planet today.
Solar wind flowing from this coronal hole could arrive at Earth in about 2 to 3 days from now. Geomagnetic storm conditions (Kp5 or greater) are however unlikely but it could be an interesting event for high latitude sky watchers.
|Predicted Kp max||4|
|M-class solar flare||25%|
|X-class solar flare||1%|
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!
