BARREL Daily Update Jan 23rd 2014

Hi all, 

Possible launches at each station today! There are a lot of sunspots which are becoming geo-effective, but the last M-class flare (possible able to produce a small geomagnetic storm) was on Jan 13th. Fingers crossed that this is just the calm before the (geo-magnetic) storm. 

Ground Weather:
Temp.: -7. C
Wind speed: 12 knots

Halley 6: 
Temp.: -3.9 C
Wind speed: 6 knots 

Payloads up: 
SANAE IV: 2A, 2B, 2C
Halley 6:  2L,

Payloads coming down:

Halley Bay Search Coil Magnetometer :

GOES Electron Flux:
The electron levels have stayed at moderate levels.

GOES Proton Flux:
The proton levels are at moderate levels. 

Space Weather from and 
Solar wind speed: 415.5 km/s 
Solar proton density: 1.8 cm^(-3)  

Sun spot number: 144
NOAA has the likelihood of a M class flare at 30% and a 1% chance of an X class flare.  

The coronal hole is leaving the Earthward facing side of the Sun. There are currently no other holes observed on the Earthward side of the Sun. 

Kp is quiet 
kp =1 with a 24 max of kp = 3

Bz = 2.0 north
Btotal = 4.8 nT  

From Kyoto:
AE: quiet

Dst: very quiet.
