First Sunspot of a New Cycle 25


Solar activity picks up this week after a lull, bringing some fast solar wind that is causing a mild solar storm.

Aurora has been seen at high latitudes and sporadically at mid-latitudes, but effects are mild. These mild conditions are likely to continue through the weekend. Amateur radio and GPS operators should only experience minor effects.
