Solar Stormwatch / Re: **THIS PHASE OF SOLAR STORMWATCH IS COMPLETE**

Me too. I'm hopeful that there might be more stormwatching one day but meanwhile, thank you for your contribution Gerald!

Solar Stormwatch / **THIS PHASE OF SOLAR STORMWATCH IS COMPLETE**
« on: November 11, 2015, 10:30:03 am »
The Current phase of Solar Stormwatch is now complete - it has been a huge success and produced many papers. The project is, therefore, about to be retired but there are some tweaks the admin team need to do before this can happen. This means that the parts of the site that are not working (such as What's that and Track It Back) will not be repaired. The front page of the Solar Stormwatch site will eventually be changed to make this clear and the forum will be made read-only.

Meanwhile, apologies to anyone wanting to become involved in Solar Stormwatch during this transition period - and a big, CME-sized thank you to everyone who has taken part over the last 5 years. We did a great job!

The project is, therefore, about to be retired - there are some tweaks the admin team need to do before this can happen. This means that the parts of the site that are not working will not be repaired and this includes being able to progress to What's That. I am sorry for the frustration this must be causing everyone. I am sure there will be an explanatory message on the forum and main site from Zooniverse before long.

Solar Stormwatch / Re: SOLAR STORMWATCH IN THE NEWS

Thanks Luke. It's always good to pinpoint why something isn't as accurate as you would like. Hope it's possible to improve the Jmap profiling if this is still to be used as a tool for predicting CME speed and direction.

Solar Stormwatch / Re: SPOT
« on: July 21, 2015, 12:28:10 pm »
Both the speed and direction of the solar storm are needed to calculate any impact on Earth. The solar wind can also alter the CME speed - this is a quote from Chris Scott from the Solar Stormwatch science team:

Quote
There is some evidence that mass ejections interact with the backgrond solar wind so that if a storm is very fast it gets decelerated by the solar wind and slow storms get accelerated up to the solar wind speed. It takes some time to do this though. We've just published a paper showing that if you compare the speeds of a storm measured close to the sun in the STEREO coronagraphs with the speed of the same storm measured in the Heliospheric Imagers, you can see this effect.

As a rule of thumb a storm seen in "Spot" is likely to be Earth-bound if it looks roughly equal in both Ahead and Behind and appears at the 9 and 3 o'clock positions respectively.

However, the STEREO spacecraft are just coming out of solar conjunction and CME predictions have not been possible for several months. STEREO A is pretty much back to normal but STEREO B has been unresponsive since October 2014. You can follow progress via the Stereo Science Center.

@A0086000   @ hu_noes  @Muhammad Rias  Can I ask if you are from the same school / college?

I have sent you a PM A0086000.

I appreciate that this is very frustrating. I will ask around.

Not all of Solar Stormwatch is working at the moment I'm afraid.

Solar Stormwatch / Re: What's That?

Hi Muhammad,
Yes, this is a great example of an optical effect. It happens when a bright planet, in this case Venus, comes into the camera's field of view causing optical flares and the vertical saturation spikes you can see here.There is a list of odd things you might come across and how to classify them in this thread.

Hi rubegan, I have not come across that error message before - and I can submit a What's That answer without any problem.  If a techie team member doesn't drop by later today I'll alert them. Meanwhile, it sometimes helps them trace a problem if they know what browser and operating system you use. Thanks!

Unfortunately paywalled. Great news though!

Solar Stormwatch / Re: why can't i play "incoming"?

Hi Holger,
Yes Incoming and Incoming Trace-it are still down but ordinary Trace-It is working fine (for me anyway!) Please let us know if you are unable to access Trace-It as it does not require any unlocking.
