    Another sunspot has appeared, this time from the old cycle. 

    Ironically it could also be a reverse polarity one from SC25 ?

    Just a few pics from early this morning at West Sands, St. Andrews  First one was 100iso eq @ f1.8 and 10 sec exposure, strong moonlight about midnight with the faintest of hint of an aurora.

    From Salon on the Isle Of Rum & The Isle Of Lewis tonight. Credit; Martin Keivers and Emma Mitchell.  

    More shots here from Scotland last night. Fingers crossed again tonight as there is another predicted Kp7 ☺

    LOW SOLAR ACTIVITY REVEALS RED AURORAS: For the past two nights, geomagnetic activity has been very low. With no sunspots, no solar flares, and no significant streams of solar wind to disturb our planet's magnetic field, the forecast called for no auroras. Yet, auroras appeared anyway--"and they were crazy red," reports Markus Varik of Tromsø, Norway:

    PULSATING AURORAS: Living inside the Arctic Circle for a complete 11-year solar cycle, Chad Blakely of Abisko, Sweden, has seen just about every kind of aurora the sun has to offer. Just before daybreak, on Monday, Nov. 5th, he saw his favourite: The pulsating aurora. "It wasn't very bright--but it was absolutely amazing," says Blakley. This still image captures one of the pulses:

    A solar flare from a new-cycle area. I much prefer sunspots to snow.

    Hope solar cycle 25 is not going to ramp up rapidly once it takes hold.

    wont ramp up for another year, maxing approx 2023 and is projected to be lower sunspot count than solar cycle 24 according to NASA

    THE HELMET OF LOKI: In Norse mythology, Loki was a cunning trickster, able to change his shape into illusory forms. He must have been related to Lady Aurora. On Nov. 6th, tour guide Marianne Bergli was in northern Norway, the home of Loki, and saw his helmet in the sky:

    tci=38.7 billion watts

    neutron count=9.6%=high

    kp index=0 at present, which equals to more cosmic rays coming into our atmosphere.
