Hello All!

Space Weather News for Jan. 12, 2017

SUNSPOTS VANISH: So far this year, the sun has been blank more than 90% of
the time. Only one very tiny sunspot observed for a few hours on Jan. 3rd
interrupted a string of spotless days from New Year's through Jan. 11th. To
find a similar sequence of blank suns, we have to go back to May of 2010,
almost 7 years ago. What does this mean? Visit today's edition of
Spaceweather.com for the full story.

SPACE WEATHER CONTINUES: No sunspots? No problem. Observers around the
Arctic Circle are still observing magnificent auroras. A new apparition is
possible on Jan. 12th or 13th when a narrow stream of solar wind is
expected to brush against Earth's magnetic field. NOAA forecasters estimate
a 35% chance of polar geomagnetic storms. Monitor the realtime aurora
gallery for sightings.

This morning in Abisko, Sweden, an automated auroracam recorded green
ribbons dancing above the moonlit snowscape. The sunspot number at the
time: Zero. Credit: Lights over Lapland.
