Northern Lights Now – A large full halo CME launched from the Sun on Oct 9, 2021. Solar weather forecasters are expecting G1 and G2 (up to KP=6) conditions on Oct 12 as a result. Should be a good opportunity for aurora hunters
Northern Lights Now – The coronal hole pointed towards Earth today brings the next chance for aurora the second week in October.
This is a quickpost – NLN will post more information on this coronal hole soon.
Northern Lights Now – We are actively monitoring active region 2673. Over the last 24 hours it has developed delta features and now looks primed to produce a large flare. The level of magnetic mixing is unusual. Background X-Ray flux is almost at M-class level.
UPDATE 23:00 Sept 4, 2017
Wow – not kidding. This active region has now produced several M-class flares. At least one of those generated a nearly full halo on LASCO. Expect this to impact Earth around Sept 6/7, SWPC will likely post a G2 watch soon.
