A satellite that carries a large number of radio programs, including heavy usage by ABC, Clear Channel, Jones and Westwood One, is experiencing power circuit failures, according to a report from Radio magazine. The report says that SES Americom has notified the users of the AMC-8 satellite that failures of three power circuits have pressed the company to begin work to relocate the services currently distributed by the satellite.
Sky spokeman Tony O'Brien says the signal was lost while the satellite was being re-positioned, but that communications with the ground station are restored and Optus will re-point the satellite, a maneovre which should be complete about about midnight. Updates will be published on the Sky website.
MOSCOW, March 29 (RIA Novosti) - Broadcasts in Russia's Far East were interrupted after a communications satellite failed in the early hours of Wednesday, the space agency said.
"Contact [with the Express AM11] was lost at 3.40 a.m. Moscow time [11.40 p.m. GMT] and has yet not been restored," the agency's information center said.
Another Express spacecraft, Express A2, is currently broadcasting Russian television Channel One, RTR, and Kultura in the region.
Satellite operator Kosmicheskaya Svyaz refused to comment.

SEATTLE, WA, Apr 13, 2006--Average daily sunspot numbers for the week were up more than 12 points to 70.7. What really happened was that for the seven days of March 30 through April 5, the daily sunspot number at the start of the period was 35, and it rose to 88 by the seventh day. April 6 is the first day of the reporting period for this bulletin, and on that day the sunspot number rose to 105. The next day it dropped way down to 65, then 57, then 46 last Sunday, and by Wednesday, April 12 it had risen again to 79.

Northern Lights Activity Right Now
Based on satellite measurements, auroral activity on Earth right now is:
9/10 - Very Strong Conditions
Sunspot 875 has a twisted, complex magnetic field that harbors energy for strong solar flares. spaceweather
Region 10875 developed slowly and remains capable of producing M class flares. There is a magnetic delta structure in the northeastern part of the main penumbra. Flare: long duration C1.3 peaking at 07:26 UTC. This was associated with a CME over the southeast limb. Region 10876 was quiet. Magnetically the region has negative polarity areas in the east and west with a weaker positive polarity area in between. source

Active Warning: Yes
NOAA Scale: G1 - Minor
A prominence erupted from central meridian on Jun 25. The eruption started at 22:21UT. The corresponding CME is not yet seen by LASCO. This CME can introduce active to minor storm conditions in three days. >From tomorrow, a slightly disturbed
geomagnetic field is possible as we enter the fast coronal hole wind
stream. We expect the coronal hole to cause unsettled conditions, active
periods are possible.
The Corotating Interaction Region preceding the fast coronal
wind stream did arrive this morning, Jun 27. We expect unsettled
conditions, with possible active periods. The CME corresponding to the
prominence eruption of late Jun 25 was captured by CACTus. The CME was
rather slow (200 km/s) and was mainly SW-directed. We don't expect any
disturbance. Sunspot group 59 (NOAA AR 0897) comes more into view. The
group shows mixed magnetic polarity. We estimated a probability of
10-20% for a C-flare.
