Kp5/G1 storm expected tonight (28th Oct)
The SWPC have a Kp5/G1 watch active for tonight. They have had them previously this week which amounted to nothing and left an lot of people disappointed. So we are cautious to get peoples hopes up, as such we have barely covered this event. But this one looks like it might be a bit more accurate. On the graph above, the Protons are rising considerably, which means that something reasonable sized will arrive shortly, probably tonight, as forecast. Although it is cloudy in most of Northern Europe tonight, here included, we will be heading out for a few hours if the solar wind conditions at the ACE satellite show good signs. After the previous week, I will be happy to get even green clouds.
