Latest Space weather Stories
The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 7:42 a.m. EDT on June 10, 2014. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) – which typically observes the entire sun 24 hours a day -- captured images of the flare.
Now that the Venus Express spacecraft has completed its eight-year scientific mission and is preparing to plunge into the planet’s atmosphere, the ESA has started providing regular space weather reports for an extraterrestrial world for the first time.
Two of the six instruments that will fly on NOAA's first Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite - R (GOES-R) satellite have completed integration with the spacecraft.
Previous research has found that the electrical bolts are caused by cosmic radiation and a new study has found that streams of high-energy particles from the Sun accelerated by the solar wind also play a role.
For many years, scientists have been striving to understand the constantly changing structure and behaviour of the huge magnetic bubble that surrounds our planet. One approach – pioneered by Russian scientist Nikolai Tsyganenko - has been to develop models based on data sent back by spacecraft, such as ESA's Cluster quartet.
The sun emitted a mid-level solar flare, peaking at 6:07 a.m. EDT on May 8, 2014, and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, captured images of it.
An X-class solar flare that erupted on March 29 was observed by four different spacecraft and one ground-based observatory, making it the best viewed phenomenon of its kind.
Last month (April 8-11), scientists, government officials, emergency planners and others converged on Boulder, Colorado, for NOAA's Space Weather Workshop—an annual gathering to discuss the perils and probabilities of solar storms.
New Satellite Will Advance Weather Forecasts on Earth and in Space DENVER, May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The two large modules of the first GOES-R series weather satellite spacecraft
