what do these warnings mean what do they talk aboutThese are warnings for potential solar activity (think solar flares/CMEs) that might impact things like satellites, communications, and astronauts in space. There's no danger to us ground-dwellers.

Yep and us aurora chasers go nuts 'cos it's a heads up when the Kp starts to climb. :lol: spaceweather.com (http://www.spaceweather.com/) has an alert out for tonight and tomorrow. The sun's pretty quiet but looks like there's a strong solar wind just now. Bz was running at -5 and below earlier, no sign of any aurora early this evening and it's clouded over now :(

what do these warnings mean what do they talk aboutI know you have your answer but just to reiterate, it warns me to go outside and look for auroras. :D

I see the yellow bar on the graph page has not been corrected.

This is a reissue of SN 473 K-index of 5 warning with the right end
date and time. It still has the warning up.

Warning Condition: OnsetI think you are looking at a different warning. But then again, after looking at your link it sure looks like a correction. Oh well, I guess they'll get around to fixing the graph page eventually. Yet, this one is serial #474.

The whole thing is wacky.

To us ham radio operators, it means that it's time to set up for some aurora communications on V/UHF, but that ionospheric-reflected communications below about 25 MHz are going to h3ll in a handbasket for awhile...

The moment I saw the title I thought beskeptical was talking about the Securities Commission as well. #-o

Nah, probably just a weekend boo-boo. The graph still hasn't been fixed; it's just displaying the same earlier warning with the incorrect end date/time (which has expired now anyway). I'll be surprised if it's not corrected soon.

What they mean about what they talk about is it's the end of the world as we know it. They know where you live. There's no hiding. They're here for you. They're here already! You're next! You're next, you're next...

Ambulance Driver: We had to dig him out from under the most peculiar things I ever saw.
Dr. Hill: What things?
Ambulance Driver: Well, I don't know what they are, I never saw them before. They looked like great big seed pods.
Dr. Hill: Where was the truck coming from?
Ambulance Driver: Santa Mira.

Meanwhile, a team from the SEC will NOT win the NCAA championship again this year.

I'm an accountant, I can't help thinking of SEC as the securities regulator. :)
