      For those of you interested in the goings-on in Space, this thread will provide you a handy guide to interesting stellar occurrences visible from Sol 3.

      Coming to Europe, North Africa, and Central Asia on Friday 20 March 2015, is a Total Solar Eclipse!

      Starting about 09:45 UTC for Iceland, Germany, the Netherlands, and Greece; and 09:30 UTC for the UK and France, the total eclipse will cut a swathe between Iceland and Scotland. A partial eclipse will extend from Greenland and cover Europe and encompass North Africa, Mesopotamia, and Central Asia.

      There is expected to be a minor geomagnetic storm today (and today only) for a “coronal hole high speed stream”, but nothing interesting for the next week.

      There is expected to be a minor Geomagnetic storm on Monday 10 August, but nothing significant.

      No news is good news; no expected geomagnetic storms. The sun sleeps this week.

      Yet again, I report that the sun sleeps this week. There may have been a bit of a hiccup over the weekend, but should only have disrupted communications with the station for a few minutes on Friday.

      I will also update you if NORAD starts posting any advisories surrounding the Arctic regions; rumour has it that an annual discrepancy occurs close to 25 Dec, generally called the the Serial Altimetric Northern Tracking Anomaly (or SANTA for short).

      Good news everybody! The sun will sleep for another two weeks or so.

      And then after that… there’s an eclipse coming up!
