More sunspots? Loks like it.
« on: August 04, 2020, 1840 UTC »
A friend of mine alerted to spot from this site,   https://spaceweather.com/       I kind of dig-it. Almost, if not, layman's tern here.
I can't decide upon what's worst, young and stupid, or old and chemically dumbed down.

It's a good one. I've been checking it out since before I really got into SWL'ing but for more technical things I like the spotless day count since it shows percentages for the current and previous years, along with the current stretch of spotless days (if applicable). It's a bit more user friendly than the actual SWPC site (though that one has great charts which I peruse, especially the x-ray ones). (For those wanting that link, it's https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/)
