The Sun gets crazy busy this week with multiple solar storms that are inbound to earth! We should feel the first of the direct hits sometime May 15 and storing should continue into May 16 and possibly through the 17th before things begin to calm down. All this rukus is due to regions 2740 and 2741 that have been firing non-sotp solar storms ever since before they even came into Earth view. Lucky for aurora photographers, they have already given us G1=Kp 5=Kp 5 and G3=Kp 7=Kp 7 level storms with aurora dipping down as far south as Wyoming and Colorado in the USA. Learn more about these regions, how they are boosting emergency and amateur radio propagation back into the marginal range, and why they could mess with your GPS reception this week!
