Kp still at 6, clouds still about. (10:00 pm ACST)

Says it all really, some of the longest ongoing geomagnetic activity in this Solar cycle and all we see is clouds. No word from any of the aurora hounds, this cloud is too wide and too deep I fear (just heard form one NZ observer, nothing his way). However, given that sunspot group 798/808 is still popping off flares (3 M class today, one an M6) we can expect on-going geomagnetic activity for at least the next day or so. After watching the movie in the previous post, have a look at this most recent stunning page in the Space Weather Gallery. there are also some closeup shots of sunspot group 798 by Paul Moss (the edge of the image is not the edge of the Sun), and some new 798/808 close-up shots by Andy Dodson.

And now I am going to bed.
