Transpicuous News March 25th Geomagnetic Update


I suppose we could call this event, the Geomagnetic Storm that Wasn’t.

On last Wed Nights UnFuckIt discussion, I opened the show with a geomagnetic update discussing the C Class solar flares and the Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that was purportedly heading towards Earth.  The next day I put out a more technical Geomagnetic Update.  The long and short of it all comes down to the question: what the hell happened?  Was it a dud CME?  OR….. are we not being given the information to be able to really evaluate our current situation on our little blue marble? And again I ask: do we even have the right measuring sticks to be able to comprehend what’s going on?




EDITED @ 16:30 to add:

These two emails were sent out by SWPC- the first one warns of a “Geomagnetic Sudden Impulse Event” and the second one contains the “summary” of the event (below).  Interestingly, the Summary gives the time of the event as 21:51 March 24th 2019- which is when one of the “black outs” occurred in the magnetosphere and solar wind speed graphs.  So I have to ask: What the hell actually happened?







I'm me. It's who I wanna be.
