Severe Level 4 Magnetic Storm - March 17, 2015

Ben Davidson / Suspicious0bservers quick look at one of the strongest geomagnetic storms of this current solar cycle. (posted 8 hours ago by Ben)

"If your initial reaction to this is, 'So much for this quiet sun we talked about', this event was a level four. Which should happen approximately 100 times each solar cycle. There have not been more than five and we are about done with solar maximum. We are ninety five percent below our average for the cycle on level 4 storms, and one hundred percent missing kp9 level 5 storms. This CME was strong, but not this strong. This could be a symptom of that weakening magnetosphere - The number one concern on Earth right now, in my opinion." - Ben Davidson
