Solar Storm Forecast – April 25, 2019 at 06:48PM

Bonus Footage: I highlight the recently confirmed Mars quake detected by the seismometer (SEIS) on the Insight Lander. This bonus segment originally aired on TMRO Space News, April 24, 2019.

Space Weather picks up slightly this week as a remnant coronal hole region rotates through the Earth-strike zone. Because this region is weakening under the influence of a solar minimum Sun, expect only unsettled conditions, with aurora shows limited mostly to “High-Latitudes”. Amateur radio operators should also expect poor radio propagation this week, due to our spotless Sun, but GPS users should enjoy decent signal reception, even at low latitudes. Learn the details of the coming fast solar wind, find out when we can expect solar flux to rise again, and see what else our Sun has in store this week.
