Solar Storm Forecast – August 08, 2019 at 08:42PM

This episode of Weather News is sponsored in part by 3ric Johanson:

For early access to these forecasts and a more extensive video on the lunar rover see:

This week we are coming down from a solar storm that brought us up to storm levels and brought aurora to many parts of the western hemisphere. (I will show aurora field reporter photographs in my upcoming solar storm forecast). The big storm may be over, but we will get another chance for some fast solar wind later this week, when a smaller coronal hole rotates into the Earth-strike zone. This will likely give us some more aurora at “High-Latitudes”. Amateur radio and emergency responders are still dealing with low solar flux, but we are seeing some new bright regions on the Sun, some of which have magnetic polarities that are indicating an influence from the upcoming Solar Cycle 25! Learn more about these sunspots, when we can expect aurora again, and discover how space weather will affect the new manned space race to the moon.
