Solar Storm Forecast 08-06-2015

The Sun is showing signs of waking up just a little this week as two active regions in Earth view are growing rapidly. No big flares are in the forecast yet this week, but we are watching closely. A good chance for aurora comes on August 6-8 when the effects from a high speed stream and possibly a glancing blow from a wispy solar storm bumps us up into storm conditions for a few days. Likely aurora will be visible at high latitudes and may reach further down into Canada, the northern USA and the north UK (also NZ and Tasmania). Expect GPS and amateur radio issues in these areas during the storm. Learn details of the coming activity, watch some gorgeous eruptions on the backside of the Sun, and see what else our Sun has in store this week.
