Solar Storm Forecast 02/05/2021
This week multiple bright regions rotate into view that have been launching solar storms. Question is, will they launch something Earth-directed?
It looks like the fast solar wind we expected has fizzled to a great degree. We’ve had some aurora at high latitudes, but at mid-latitudes, aurora has been rather fleeting. Luckily, amateur radio has seen a boost, despite the low solar fluxes. I have gotten reports of increased activity on 10 meters, which is welcome news indeed. On top of that, we continue to have new regions rotate into Earth-view. These regions are continuing to launch solar storms (including one more non-Earth-directed launch today) so we may have more activity waiting to reach out to us, just over the horizon.
