Space Weather News!

Is there really such a thing as space weather news? Sounds suspiciously science-fictional...


(From Space Weather News)

"Space weather this week is definitely beginning to pick up. We have no less than four bright regions and they look like new cycle bright regions so our sun is definitely waking up. On top of that, we're seeing multiple solar storms and even some radio bursts, it's really fantastic news."

Yes, there really are space weather reports! Science fiction fans of course think this is nothing new. In his 1943 story The Storm, sf writer A.E. van Vogt tells all about space weather:

On the three-dimensional map at weather headquarters on the planet Kaider III, the storm was colored orange. Which meant it was the biggest of the four hundred odd storms raging in the Fifty Suns region of the Lesser Magellanic Cloud. It showed as an uneven splotch fronting at Latitude 473, Longitude 228, Center 190 parsecs, but that was a special Fifty Suns degree system which had no relation to the magnetic center of the Magellanic Cloud as a whole. The report about the Nova had not yet been registered on the map. When that happened the storm color would be changed to an angry red.
