CME events - Observations

Unfortunately EISCAT mainland radars are non-operational due to a cooling system problem. Hence, we will monitor the CME events with three instruments: 1) ESR Svalbard radar (real-time graph), 2) KAIRA, and, 3) TomoScand.

The TomoScand flights for today Sep 12:

COSMOS 2407

01.00
11.30 

COSMOS 2414
03:00
13.30

COSMOS 2463
11.30
20.00 

CASSIOPE
07.15
22.15

Especially COSMOS 2414 13:30 is interesting!

Sep 13 the COSMOS flights ~45 min later + trajectory a bit further in the west. CASSIOPE nearly same time and trajectory.

Last night a ~800 nT storm was measured at SGO. We expect the second CME impact and the storm this afternoon or later in the evening.
