    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 ☺

    tci=37.9 billion watts

    neutron count=8.6%=high

    kp index=0 for next 24 hours so flatlining, further cooling of thermosphere and extra cosmic rays coming in.

    Yeah, as mentioned previously reverse polarity SS's based on prevailing cycle are not unusual. Some of it, I understand an indicator is which hemisphere and latitude within that hemisphere. I think.

    yes indicators that solar cycle 25 is getting ready to rev up. an analogy: it takes a year to 18 months to get ready for a marathon. solar cycle 25 might not get going until april or possibly september, its anyones guess, but 2020 could have a big sunspotless count.
