Current space weather and aurora forecasts from NOAA/SWPC

Solar Observatory contains a lot of animated content. Animated WSA-Enlil simulation, for example, shows when a coronal mass ejection, CME or solar storm will impact the Earth.

Explore the sun and learn about space weather from your living room

Solar Observatory includes Twitter feeds with relevant hashtags, including a curated timeline with the most prominent names from the space weather community. We call it Aurora Timeline. It helps by serving as a commentary and discussion of ongoing phenomena. It also enables you to see beautiful aurora images from around the world, as they are tweeted in real time during a solar storm, and gives you additional insights in space weather phenomena as they are discussed on Twitter.

Explore and learn on your Apple TV

Even if you don't know anything about space weather - we've got you covered. You can zoom on every image, chart or animation we present, and read explanation of the particular chart and its role in the space weather puzzle so you can learn and understand what is happening.
