Checking the Space Weather

Posted April 2, 2008

We have plenty of bad weather around here -- from hurricanes to snowstorms.   (Yes, if you're new to our area, we can have some major snowstorms!)

But how about geomagnetic storms, X-ray solar flares and solar winds?  There's nothing like a coronal hole to mess up a vacation. talks about the weird, rough conditions above the atmosphere.  The site really makes it easy for the novice to understand.

NOAA also runs a space weather site with tons of information that I'm sure someone must understand.

I'd like to thank Brandon Warren, a science teacher at Middle Creek High School in Apex, for sending the link.  He says he uses that site in class, and his students enjoy it!
