    Solar Storm Forecast 02-08-2018

    This is the one I watch.




    Space Weather forecasts by a credentialed Space Meteorologist. Stay on top of GPS (GNSS) &
    amateur radio issues. Know where & when to see aurora during solar storms plus more!

    Rocket to the Red Planet & Region 2699: Solar Storm Forecast 02-08-2018

    Published on Feb 7, 2018

    The Sun wakes up & fires a near M-class flare just after the historic launch of the SpaceX Falcon
    Heavy rocket with our favorite Starman, Major Tom, on board. All this while we wait for some
    moderately fast solar wind to hit Earth with a mild solar storm and shower us with aurora views
    once again. Learn the details of the coming solar storm, how much amateur radio operators,
    emergency responders, and GPS users will be affected by the radio noise coming from the fiery
    new active region, and see how the SpaceX launch heralds in a new era for space weather and
    changes our relationship with the skies beyond our home planet.
