Space Weather News for Feb. 22, 2018

EARTH'S MAGNETIC FIELD IS RINGING LIKE A BELL: This morning in Lofoten, Norway, a magnetic observatory picked up unusually pure low-frequency waves rippling around the Arctic Circle. Known as "pulsations continuous" (Pc), these rare magnetic oscillations can energize particles in our planet's magnetosphere, boosting the brightness of auroras. Indeed, strong auroras are being seen right now in Scandinavia. Visit today's edition of to learn what caused these Pc waves and to monitor the ongoing display.

Remember, is on Facebook!

Something going on guys.

Check the weird weather lately.  If Space Weather is reporting weirdness then it's time to sit up and take notice.

Thanks Paul.
