2000Z, August 3, 2011 - The protons have trickled in at GOES, but at a low level. Seemingly the Solar Radiation Storm threat is off the table, at least for now. The protons may again increase with the arrival of the shock driven by the CME that left the Sun yesterday. That arrival is expected very late August 4 (UTC) or early August 5th. The R2 (Moderate) Radio Blackout of today (1348Z max) was accompanied by yet another earthbound CME. That one is anticipated to pass earth on August 7th. Early indications are that G1 (Minor) Geomagnetic Storming is most likely the extent of it. Watch here for more.
