NASA ICON Mission launched this month to study the Ionosphere in more detail.

NASA's ICON to explore boundary between Earth and Space
by Lina Tran for GSFC News
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Nov 07, 2018


NASA heliophysics missions study a vast interconnected system from the Sun to the space surrounding Earth and other planets, and to the farthest limits of the Sun's constantly flowing stream of solar wind. ICON's observations will provide key information about how Earth's atmosphere is connected to this complex, dynamic system.
Early in the morning of Nov. 7, 2018, NASA launches the Ionospheric Connection Explorer, or ICON, a spacecraft that will explore the dynamic region where Earth meets space: the ionosphere.(snip)

Depending on the energy it absorbs from the Sun, the ionosphere grows and shrinks. For that reason, scientists long thought this part of space was only affected by what happens in the space above it.

But over the past decade, a growing body of evidence has indicated the region is much more variable than we can explain with solar activity alone. The ionosphere's contents are not evenly distributed: Dense patches of its charged gases, called plasma, are scattered throughout. Eventually, researchers linked these patches to global weather patterns - large-scale events such as several hurricanes rushing across the ocean at once, or changes in cloud formation over tropical rainforests.

Though the Sun provides the energy that drives weather we experience on Earth, day-to-day weather is driven by something very different: differences in temperature and moisture, interactions between oceans and land, and regions of high and low atmospheric pressure. Still, scientists were surprised to discover that terrestrial weather and the Sun manage to meet in the middle - at the ionosphere - in a tug-of-war for control.

Cluster 18-yr. update--

Space weather is no abstract concept - it may happen in space, but its effects on Earth can be significant. To help better forecast these effects, ESA's Cluster mission, a quartet of spacecraft that was launched in 2000, is currently working to understand how our planet is connected to its magnetic environment, and unravelling the complex relationship between the Earth and its parent star.(snip)

Various spacecraft are investigating the magnetic environment around the Earth and how it interacts with the solar wind. Efforts have been internationally collaborative, from observatories including ESA's Cluster and Swarm missions, NASA's Magnetospheric MultiScale mission (MMS), the Van Allen Probes, and THEMIS (Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms), and the Japanese (JAXA/ISAS) Arase and Geotail missions.

Cluster comprises four identical spacecraft that fly in a pyramid-like formation, and is able to gather incredibly detailed data on the complex structure and fluctuations of our magnetic environment.

LEO (Low Earth Orbit) is about to get much more crowded. Elon Musk's SpaceX has US Govt. approval to launch nearly 12, 000 new satellites!

Don't trust your 'self-driving car' when a massive CME hits, haha.

FCC tells SpaceX it can deploy up to 11,943 broadband satellites

Initial launch of 4,425 satellites to be followed by 7,518 closer to the ground.

Cable-like latency

SpaceX's initial 4,425 satellites are expected to orbit at altitudes of 1,110km to 1,325km, a fraction of the altitude of traditional broadband satellites. Because of the low orbits, SpaceX says its broadband network will have latencies as low as 25ms, similar to cable or fiber systems. SpaceX has also said it will provide gigabit speeds and that it will provide broadband access worldwide.

Musk will have 5G networks on the Moon by 2030 (but NOT Mars).... just my prediction.

COMET PLUNGES INTO THE SUN: Subtract one from the Solar System's total count of comets. Yesterday a small unnamed comet dove into the sun and evaporated. Coronagrapbhs on board the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) recorded the death plunge. The doomed comet was a member of the Kreutz family. Kreutz sungrazers are fragments from the breakup of a single giant comet many centuries ago. They are seen falling into the sun dozens of times a year. This particular sungrazer measured a few tens of meters in diameter, too small to survive a close approach with the sun.

THE NEXT GEOMAGNETIC STORM: Minor G1-class geomagnetic storms are likely on Dec. 1st when a stream of solar wind hits Earth's magnetic field. The gaseous material is flowing from a large hole in the sun's atmosphere. This is a long-lasting hole that has lashed Earth with solar wind about once a month since July. The last time it happened on Nov. 4th, auroras were sighted in US states including Wyoming, Montana, Iowa, Washington, North Dakota and, of course, Alaska. It could happen again this weekend.

A HYPERACTIVE COMET IS APPROACHING EARTH: Small but hyperactive Comet 46P/Wirtanen is approaching Earth and could soon become visible to the naked eye. On Dec. 16th, the kilometer-wide ball of dirty ice will be less than 11.5 million km away--making it one of the 10 closest-approaching comets of the Space Age. It already looks magnificent through amateur telescopes.

On Nov. 26th, Gerald Rhemann took this picture using a 12-inch reflector in Farm Tivoli, Namibia: [link to spaceweathergallery.com]

Rhemann says that the comet's emerald green atmosphere is 50 arcminutes wide. In other words--almost twice as wide as a full Moon. Its apparent diameter could double in the weeks ahead as the comet comes even closer. Because Wirtanen's brightness is spread over such a wide area, it is diluted just below the limit of naked eye visibility, with a current magnitude near +6.0. We don't yet know if the comet will ultimately become visible to the unaided eye--but it will certainly be an easy target for binoculars and backyard telescopes in December.

Comet Wirtanen passes through the inner solar system every 5.4 years. Right now it is just below the orbit of Earth, and the gap is narrowing. Click on the image above to explore the comet's approach, courtesy of NASA/JPL.

NASA Spacecraft is Fast Approaching the 1,650-foot-wide Asteroid Bennu

Osiris-Rex is fast approaching Bennu and will arrive in orbit around the 1,650-foot-wide (500 meters) space rock on December 3, 2018.

The spacecraft Completed Inflight Testing of the Touch-and-Go Sample Acquisition Mechanism (TAGSAM) on Nov. 14, 2018. It is scheduled to arrive at Bennu and begin surveying the asteroid up close.

The Osiris-Rex spacecraft will initiate an intricate dance with Bennu, mapping and studying it in preparation for sample collection in July 2020. Osiris-Rex will deliver the sample to Earth in Septenber 2023.

Scientists suggest that a massive collision between an asteroid and a planetsimal about one billion years ago, may have resulted in the birth of Bennu.

Awesome post! I'm awed by your SubGenius analysis of what's important.

Comet 46P is one of the BEST COMETS in recent history for the Northern Hemisphere. It's projected to be naked-eye visible by mid-December.

Tracker Chart:
[link to s22380.pcdn.co (secure)]

Typically during the course of a year about a dozen comets will come within the range of amateur telescopes. Most quietly come and go with little fanfare, but during the upcoming weeks one rather small comet will be making an unusually close approach to the Earth. On December 16th, Comet 46P/Wirtanen (pronounced WERE-tuh-nun) will pass just over 11 million kilometers (7 million miles) from Earth.

SOLAR WIND SPARKS POLAR AURORAS: A stream of solar wind is buffeting Earth's magnetic field. Last night, it turned the landscape of northern Norway green.

[link to spaceweathergallery.com]

More auroras are in the offing. Not only will Earth remain in the current stream of solar wind for another ~24 hours, but also a CME is coming. NOAA forecasters say that a coronal mass ejection (CME) might hit Earth's magnetic field on Dec. 5th. It was launched into space Nov. 30th when a filament of magnetism in the sun's southern hemisphere exploded. The slow-moving CME is not heading directly for Earth, but even a grazing impact would likely spark strong polar auroras.

snip:
Wirtanen’s relatively small core of dirty ice cannot produce enough gas and dust to create a really bright, flamboyant tail. The best case scenario is probably a big diffuse cloud of magnitude +3 or +4, barely visible to the unaided eye but an easy target for binoculars and small wide-field telescopes.

and this:
Last night in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, photographer Chris Cook didn't even need a telescope to capture Wirtanen's green glow. He took this picture using a Canon 6D digital camera with a 35 mm lens:

and:
On the nights of closest approach, 46P/Wirtanen can be found in the constellation Taurus rising in the east at sunset and high in the sky at midnight.

Although we are in solar minimum, our Sun is staying busy! It launched a partially Earth-directed solar storm back on November 30th and we are expecting it to impact by December 5th. This solar storm will likely graze Earth to the south, but as I mention in the informal forecast (on Patreon), the tail end of this storm could actually hit Earth a little more directly. This means we could see aurora to mid-latitudes, if only briefly! Learn the details of this coming solar storm, how long it will linger, and what else our Sun has in store!

IS THE SUN CONSCIOUS?

Forgive me if this has already been posted.

Although hard to absorb in one sitting, I had to share this here for obvious reasons;) I have my own theories on a 'conscious' Sun', but they're even crazier than Mr. Sheldrake's.

Viewing Hint- The first 20-30 minutes are a crash course in philosophy of science. Skip ahead past 30 mins. to hear some wild ideas. Personally, I recommend watching the whole talk in 10-15 min chunks, but that's me.

Rupert's information is really, really great, but his no-frills presentation may put you to sleep.... I intend to watch this several times!

The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object.

~ Thomas Jefferson, Inaugural Address, 1801


It is not only vain, but wicked, in a legislator to frame laws in opposition to the laws of nature, and to arm them with the terrors of death. This is truly creating crimes in order to punish them.

A NEW SUNSPOT: Breaking a string of 9 spotless days, a new sunspot group is emerging near the sun's equator. Only 24 hours ago it was invisible. Now the sunspot contains almost a dozen dark cores and sprawls across more than 75,000 km of the solar surface.

New Sunspot


A rare sight during the descent into solar minimum, a new sunspot. Region 2729, a member of weakening Solar Cycle 24, formed fairly quickly in the southwest quadrant and is currently producing very minor B-Class solar flares. Although noteworthy solar flares are not expected, the sunspot should be monitored during the next 24 hours.
