The Sun is giving us some well-deserved rest this week after hitting us with that huge solar storm over Saint Patrick’s Day. The unsettling effects of that storm lingered for nearly a week afterwards causing aurora flare-ups and wreaking havoc with the amateur radio bands. Flare activity is remaining low despite numerous active regions on the Earth-facing Sun and we have had very little in the way of solar ejections. However, two large coronal holes are teaming up to give us an extended period of high speed wind over the coming days. This fast wind could bring storm conditions, especially at high latitudes, that could impact GPS and amateur radio operations, but will also bring a good chance for aurora. Learn details of this coming fast wind, catch some stunning aurora pictures from the lingering effects of last week’s storm, and see what else the Sun has in store this week.
