One Storm Down, One to Go: Solar Storm Forecast 02-05-2020

This Space Weather News forecast sponsored in part by Millersville University:

Space Weather has been calming down over the past few days since a solar storm hit Earth at the turn of the month. However, more fast solar wind is coming, which could give us another chance for aurora at high latitudes into the weekend, with views possibly extending down to mid-latitudes for a short while. Although sunspot 2757 has now rotated to the Sun’s farside, we do have two new bright regions rotating into Earth-view on the Sun’s east limb. These regions are helping to keep radio propagation on Earth’s dayside in the marginal range. Expect solar flux to remain in the low 70s this week. GPS users should continue to enjoy good GPS reception on Earth’s dayside thanks to a spotless Sun, but on Earth’s nightside, GPS reception could get a little dicey near dawn and dusk, and anywhere near aurora once the solar storm hits. Learn the details of the coming fast solar wind, catch up on aurora photos from the recent storm, and see what else our Sun has in store!
