GEOMAGNETIC UNREST EXPECTED: For the next three days, Earth's polar magnetic field may be unsettled. The reason: A solar wind stream is approaching Earth, due to arrive on Jan. 18th. Solar wind speeds could top 500 km/s--not fast enough to cause a full-fledged geomagnetic storm, but possibly enough for some beautiful Arctic auroras.

SOLAR SECTOR BOUNDRY CROSSING: Last night, skies over Finland turned shocking green. What happened? Earth crossed through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet--a vast wavy structure that separates regions of positive and negative magnetic polarity in interplanetary space. This is called a "solar sector boundary crossing"; such crossings can cause geomagnetic disturbances around the poles.

SOLAR WIND STREAM: Earth is entering a stream of solar wind flowing from a northern hole in the sun's atmosphere. Forecasters expect wind speeds to top 600 km/s on Jan. 20-21, possibly fast enough to spark a minor G1-class geomgnetic storm. Arctic auroras are likely.

Solar activity has been very low lately. Kudos to Simple 27 for keeping everyone updated. I've been very distracted by pressing and current events.

Cycle 25 has had a stutter-start which is not unusual. We'll see a big uptick in activity soon. Here's where we are at in comparison to the weak Cycle 24--

[link to solen.info (secure)]

As you can see, Cycle 24 had two peaks. The Northern hemisphere peaked in 2012 and the Southern in 2014. Of course the magnetic poles have shifted so we're seeing the Southern hemisphere more active this time.

A comparison of Cycles 23-25 here:

Our old, old friend AR2797 is finally decaying after 3 rotations. Remarkable and rare!

We may have a new region coming over in the NE....we'll see.

This looks like the magnetic canopy of a sunspot group, temporarily hidden behind the edge of the sun. The dark cores, if they exist, will rotate into view during the next 24 hours. Stay tuned.

SOLAR WIND STREAM MISSES EARTH: The storm is cancelled. A solar wind stream expected to hit Earth on Jan. 21st, bringing a chance of G1-class geomagnetic storms, apparently missed. It's not surprising; the stream emerged from a northern hole in the sun's atmosphere. It was not squarely Earth-directed, and probably sailed high above our planet's North Pole.

Re: SOLAR WATCH * Huge X8.2 Flare Sept. 10, 2017! (Updated Daily)
NASA has a new addition to the Deep Space Network in Madrid. Postponed by a freak blizzard in Spain (global warming donchya know), it finally came on line yesterday. Here's a report from JPL--

A powerful new antenna has been added to the NASA Space Communications and Navigation’s Deep Space Network (DSN), which connects us to the space robots exploring our solar system. Called Deep Space Station 56, or DSS-56, the dish is now online and ready to communicate with a variety of missions, including NASA’s Perseverance rover when it lands on the Red Planet next month.

The new 34-meter-wide (112-foot-wide) dish has been under construction at the Madrid Deep Space Communications Complex in Spain since 2017. Existing antennas are limited in the frequency bands they can receive and transmit, often restricting them to communicating only with specific spacecraft. DSS-56 is the first to use the Deep Space Network’s full range of communication frequencies as soon as it went online. This means DSS-56 is an “all-in-one” antenna that can communicate with all the missions that the DSN supports and can be used as a backup for any of the Madrid complex’s other antennas.

Full report here:
[link to www.jpl.nasa.gov (secure)]

I hope they find STEREO B with one of these monster antennas. Feels like we're missing an eyeball and our peripheral vision and situational awareness has been compromised. In audio & music, a monaural system is better than 1/2 a Stereo.

Hello, Isis 1, my friend! hihf

We're bound to see a rapid increase in flare activity in the next few months. With 3 probes already beyond Pluto and multiple Mars missions, along with Juno , the Parker Solar Probe and new moon missions planned; the more antenna dishes the better.

Lockheed's Solarsoft site says "presumed CME". As of this posting STEREO and SOHO have not updated imagery to show this event.

In any case a CME would possibly be Earth-directed (mid-disk origin), but probably insignificant.

The Earth-facing filaments I mentioned yesterday appear to have lifted off- at least partially. A strand of filament embedded in AR2798 was ejected followed by a chunk of the larger filament south of 2797. I base this analysis on GONG H-alpha imagery. Both the Hawaii and Australia telescopes captured the event although both locations suffered from clouds or atmospheric disturbances. If you slow down the movie and watch several times you'll notice the disappearing filaments.

AURORA SURPRISE: A stream of solar wind hit Earth on Jan. 25th. The impact sparked an unexpected G1-class geomagnetic storm. "Suddenly, the whole sky was moving and dancing. It felt like aurora was hitting us with a hammer onto the head," reports Markus Varik, who sends this picture from Tromsø, Norway:

https://imgur.com/ejRYq52


"For a moment, local magnetometers dipped down to more than -1000 nT!" says Varik. "A significant magnetic disturbance was underway, and the auroras were visible despite bright moonlight."

The solar wind was expected. It emerged from a small hole in the sun's atmosphere, which forecasters had been tracking for days. The surprise occurred when a crack formed in Earth's magnetic field. Solar wind poured in, fueling a storm in disproportion to the size of the stream.

"That," says Varik, "was a pleasant surprise."
