I gotcher Space Weather resources right here

Er…Actually commenter Vic Moberg (MUOS PM support, former co-worker, and regular reader) provides a whole host of space weather resources as a comment to my post 156 years ago today.

I quote the comment in its entirety:

For those with a general interest in space weather, NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center maintains an “enthusiasts” dashboard at http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/communities/space-weather-enthusiasts.

For the SATCOM professional there is also the satellite community dashboard athttp://www.swpc.noaa.gov/communities/satellites, a 3-Day prediction at http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/3-day-forecast, and current alerts at http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/alerts-watches-and-warnings. For space weather on the go, check out NASA’s Integrated Space Weather Analysis System large collection of apps athttp://iswa.gsfc.nasa.gov/iswa/iSWA.html (limited compatibility with Internet Explorer).

If you want to try space weather prediction yourself, spaceweatherlive.com provides a detailed look at numbered active solar regions and their magnetic classification along with individual flare probabilities.

If your satellite terminal is far enough north or south to worry about potential signal loss in passing through aurora, a 30 minute forecast of aurora conditions is available at http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/aurora-30-minute-forecast, with recently archived data at http://services.swpc.noaa.gov/images/animations/ovation-north/ovation/images/ and http://services.swpc.noaa.gov/images/animations/ovation-south/ovation/images/. Additionally, Northern North American geomagnetic conditions are reported by the Government of Canadian athttp://www.spaceweather.gc.ca/forecast-prevision/regional/sr-en.php

All the links are worth checking out, especially if one is a space weather geek.
