Are we at the beginning of Solar Cycle 25?

We are doing something new today, a guest post! Good friend of the website Christian Harris who is a passionate hobby astronomer and very knowledgeable in the field of space weather started a great discussion on Facebook about something which could signal that we are at solar minimum or just beginning with Solar Cycle 25. An intriguing post from Christian that we really wanted to share with you. Below you will find his post. Let us know what you think of Christian's observation!

Coronal hole faces Earth

It is starting to become a returning topic here in the SpaceWeatherLive news section: coronal holes that face our planet. Today it's one of those days again: we have a familiar transequatorial coronal hole facing our planet today.

Coronal hole faces Earth

A large coronal hole is facing our planet today. This coronal hole seems to be an extension of the northern polar coronal hole that stretches southward all the way to the Sun's southern hemisphere.

Minor G1 geomagnetic storm

zaterdag 22 september 2018 - 06:57 UTC

Minor G1 geomagnetic storm

Minor G1 geomagnetic storm conditions were observed earlier this night as a dense solar wind structure arrived at our planet. The north-south direction of the interplanetary magnetic field went mostly southward dipping as low as -9nT and that combined with the equinox effect caused us to reach minor G1 geomagnetic storm conditions at 02:45 UTC. Source is likely the southern extension of the polar coronal hole that you can see in this video from NASA/SDO.

Coronal hole faces Earth

Coronal hole faces Earth

The previous coronal hole solar wind stream gave us some great auroral displays around the world as it caused moderate G2 geomagnetic storm conditions on 11 September which was predicted perfectly by the NOAA SWPC. Today we have yet another coronal hole facing our planet which should be exciting news for aurora watchers at high latitude locations!

Coronal hole faces Earth

A high speed coronal hole solar wind stream arrived at our planet yesterday from a small equatorial coronal hole but it did not produce much geomagnetic activity here on our planet. While the solar wind speed increased to above 500km/s, the north-south direction of the IMF stayed mostly northward and little geomagnetic activity was observed. The Kp-index never increased above Kp2 yesterday. However, we are soon getting another chance for some nice auroral displays as yet another coronal hole faced our planet yesterday.
