Well it’s up and down at the moment!
There was another X1 solar flare this morning (10th), but we have basically stopped reporting on what-if’s now, we will just report on strong data coming out of Nasa or Noaa. Well, there is good news, this X flare, although impulsive, released a CME and it is pretty much coming straight at us. It is a pretty small plasma cloud, so the show will probably only last a day at most, so it’s whatever continent gets this first will probably have the best show. It is forecast to arrive late 12th (UTC) but could be a bit earlier or a bit later, (very rarely are they on time).
Keep an eye on the 3 day forecast as the Kp figures will soon change to reflect this activity. Clear skies folks.
This is believed to be a very weak event now. Keep an eye on the forecast page the next few days anyway in case it surprises us. But oretty much everyone thinks this is a weak event and that the Nasa model (above) got it wrong.
