Halley Bay Search Coil Magnetometer :
A very nice EMIC wave last night and again this morning!  

GOES Electron Flux:
The GOES electron flux was contaminated yesterday by the energetic protons. 

GOES Proton Flux:
There was a larger SEP yesterday. The >10 MeV electrons have leveled off and are possibly started to decay. 

Space Weather from and 
Solar wind speed: 389.7 km/s 
Solar proton density: 3.4 cm^(-3)  

Sun spot number: 178
NOAA has the likelihood of a M class flare at 80% and a 50% chance of an X class flare.  

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

Bz = 4.2 north
Btotal = 4.3 nT  

There is a coronal hole which should hit earth on or around 12 - 13 of January. It is a bit farther North than than the previous one, but it seems to have a bit of a hook that is more Equatorward. 

From Kyoto:
AE: some activity, a couple of substorms yesterday afternoon. 

Dst: quiet.
