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!
Today we have a northern hemisphere coronal hole that is facing our planet. An enhanced solar wind stream from this coronal hole is expected to arrive in about 2 days from now and the NOAA SWPC has already issued a minor G1 geomagnetic storm watch for both 7 and 8 November which would be this Tuesday and Wednesday.
