The South Atlantic Anomaly is a weak point in the earth's magnetic field, allowing radiation to seep deeper into the magnetosphere. As far as I know, it doesn't move, but it covers a large portion of the southern hemisphere...
Also, it's recently been expanding, which isn't surprising, considering the entire magnetic field of the earth appears to be in a bit of a slump these days.
while others are as puzzling as the South Atlantic Anomaly
However, with our "current" technology (pun intended) it remains impractical.

I've never heard of this before so it's all new to me. Can we set out a clear rule though for the forthcoming discussion? The first person to say this is evidence of Atlantis should be put up against a wall and shot! lol.
The city of R'lyeh occupies a series of wide terraces on the slopes of a mountain, deep beneath a great ocean that lies far off to the south off the coast of Cathay

Okay, I am back.
there would still be a lot of extra energy available, for use in whatever means the designers chose. Such a craft would not be limited to a short mission life, as most low-Earth orbit satellites experience. Instead, it would have a very long endurance capability
Here is where I need some expertise from others since I cannot state anything directly. What would be the most likely type of spacecraft to utilize these capabilities?
