Happy Thanksgiving! Space Weather remains unsettled this week as we have some more fast solar wind from a southern hemisphere coronal hole hitting Earth in the next day or so. Although this fast wind will be pretty weak overall, it should keep us at unsettled conditions through the weekend. It will also bring aurora shows to high latitudes in through the weekend before settling down. Although the aurora never made it very far south during the previous solar storm last week, we do have the Unicorn meteor shower to thank for the bolide that exploded over southern Wisconsin a few days ago. As reports continue to surface, it turns out that this bolide was seen by many people over a large geographical range. Though most sightings were in Wisconsin, there have been multiple reports in places like California, South Dakota, and Ontario Canada! Learn the details of the coming fast solar wind, watch the new cycle 25 bright region peek up through the coronal hole and boost solar flux back into the marginal range for radio propagation, and see what else our Sun has in store for us!
