Solar wind speed: 294.0 km/sec
density: 3.2 protons/cm3

spaceweather.com...

Is this the same speed that has been in the 600-700 range.
That's a huge difference right?
Can someone shed some light.

OK is there someone who knows there stuff about this that can give us some real info as to what to actually expect ?

It's coming at about 4.5 million miles per hour: Strong solar storm heading for Earth

Man that's fast....

Most likely you will not notice anything different unless you live in the northern hemisphere. Then, you might see aurora's if its dark there.

It's been the same for quite some time, I'm thinking they stopped updating for some reason. Not sure why.

Yes expect nothing but a mild 5kp solar storm at the moment and a few auroras. This has been hyped up way to much by msm. as mentioned in a previous post, the storm will only intensify if the bz index stays south for a long period of time in which we caould maybe experience 6kp? which will not do much as far as knocking out electricity grids or anything else noticable.

Unless, of course, the Bz index goes south as the head of this thing blast us. Then, we may lose power for a while, and probably communications as well. It would take a certain string of events for this to happen, but if at all possible, might as well be informed and prepared.

It's 289.5 now which is essentially the same if that's what you mean. Density is 4.1

Can you explain what that means for us who don't understand the graph? Density I assume, but what are the implications.

Funny how those pictures of the magnetic field look almost human-like or angel like. Humans would only focus on things they know and what they think. They would only accumulate evidence that makes it appear humanlike and discard any evidence that portrays the earths true image if it didn't portray humans as the supreme beings of the world. It would not be accepted by humans as readily if it looked like a fish or even a bug. Since science is structured as much about satisfying the perception of our kind as it is about truth this is not unexpected. No matter.

I do perceive one thing about these images though. I notice that the earth is in about the location of the voice box no matter which animal figure it would be. This may be something to do with frequency tied to life. Just a stupid assumption I'm sure. I sure do see that people admire those with a good voice though and that musical instruments have been around for a very long time.

It's the amount of charged protons being hurled at us.

Well, it may mean that things are calming down, but we'll have to wait and see.

You are right but it can grow again next hours.

Are these measured in the magnetosphere or magnetopause?

Well, heard about this on the radio this morning and the power just flashed here at work and now the building lost power...

In the Magnetosphere. was just highlighting that considering the drop in proton and the Bz index prodominately north that there probably isnt much to see here.

Thanks for reporting. That's unfortunate...or neat depending on how you look at it, but I still have power in TN.

That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure if these things could rapidly change direction.

I'm sure coincidental, but neat to speculate
