I asked DrStrong about the magnetosphere disturbance last night and this was his reply:

"The z compenent of the solar wind switched polarity (twice) but there seemed no response from either the aural zone or the Kp index. So I assume it was that western CME that I mentioned a couple of days ago that did indeed brush by us and all the other factors made it have minimal geoeffectiveness."

sometimes i really hate looking for specific stuff onna web.

i am trying to find web sites (preferably three: each getting data from a different location on the planet) that provide geomagnetic data in a useful form. by usefull i mean : includes all three vector components (x,y,z or h,d,z) and provided in a list form.

i found one site : [link to omniweb.gsfc.nasa.gov] but i don't know the actual location of the sensor(s).

i checked the list provided in this thread without success.

so i ask u guyz: got any links to data sites that provide the magnetometer data in (mostly) real time?

Howdy, IWTB! Great catch on that flare. I had noticed that two active regions on the far-side southern hemisphere were soon coming our way. More activity from the southern hemisphere is a signal that solar-max is getting nearer.

The hook-shaped filament just north of 1361 has blasted off. Another more diffuse filament further north soon followed. I haven't seen any sign of an Earth-facing CME though. In the film loop from Big Bear you can also see region 1365 sparking a few flares. This region bears watching closely.

 Quoting: aether

Officially it's due to the solar wind stream from the southern polar coronal hole. Seems to be geo-effective mostly at the Earth's polar regions. I personally think some eddies or secondary shocks from some of the many CMEs of the past 10 days have added to it. The sun has been throwing off a great number of filaments with very little flaring activity.

The solar wind speed is still increasing-near 470 km/sec.

[link to www.swpc.noaa.gov]

The GOES plots seem to be rebounding so it may be over; or maybe we'll see several bumps throughout the evening.
[link to www.swpc.noaa.gov]
[link to www.swpc.noaa.gov]

Nothing to worry about unless the Kp Index reaches more than 5-Geo-storm level. Right now it's only 2-quiet.

thanks hugh , now i got visuals
feels like more than one hole, they take in energy, which is now observed (i`ll find link) which i believe is phrased as the collapsing plasma filaments but what i am getting is they radiate pro rata to their intake
so if we got a lot of plasma going down the holes we will be experiencing greater radiation coming out

Look at amazingly rapid growth of active region 1365 over the past 48 hours. Late on Dec 1 it began as two barely visible dots.
:dec1:

24 hours later on Dec. 2 it's grown to a small group of spots.
:dec2:

And presently is still growing in size.
:dec3:

These fast-sprouting regions may eventually produce strong flares. Note: the larger region 1362 has remained relatively stable, though we may see some magnetic interaction between the two due their proximity to each other.

Coronal Holes are not what being described in that video. The solar wind comes out of coronal holes at a much higher speed than from the rest of the corona because the magnetic field lines go out into space. Usually the MF lines are looped around active regions, but gaps in the corona allow the field lines to accelerate particles away from the sun; making our solar wind stronger and gustier at earth.

[link to www.exploratorium.edu]

[link to www.daviddarling.info]

Geo-magnetic disturbances from coronal holes are usually minor compared to CMEs. But depending on the polarity of the Interplanetary Magnetic Field we sometimes see geo-storms and satellites could be affected. I notice the K-Index nudged back up to 3 (quiet) and the electron flux is diving again.

[link to www.swpc.noaa.gov]

GOES magnetometer is also flagging again, so it's a bumpy night in space.

[link to www.swpc.noaa.gov]

This is a very minor disturbance. I over-reacted at first because Norway and Sweden were at STORM levels; but so far nothing major below polar latitudes.

GoodMorning all,


SUNSPOT UPDATE:


:SunspotsDec4:
Enlarge:
[link to www.solen.info]


Region 1366(circled) was numbered yesterday as a single spot group that rotated over the north-east limb


All regions except 1358 increased in size, some more than others. Region 1361 and 1365 both increased to a DAI type group

The largest region which is 1363 continued to grow and is now a EHI Beta-Gamma type group at 330 millionths
[link to www.solarham.com]

The large 'active region' which is still out of view from Earth, for about the next 3 to 4 days before it rotates into view is visible from the STEREO Behind spacecraft

This shows that it is still producing large solar flares and coronal mass ejections
