A long duration geomagnetic storm
Early May, one small and one large coronal hole transited the solar disk's centre. As expected, the associated high speed streams arrived at Earth just a few days later.
The already very low solar activity of the last few months ended into a downright traumatic experience for the solar observers when, starting on 3 June, the Sun became totally devoid of its so fami

Space, solar and atmospheric radiation is a key factor in the sun-space-earth research and the high-technology that has to deal with or rely on it. Think of communication and navigation high-tech systems. This explains why there is a large interest in ground- and space based instruments measuring the electromagnetic radiation. However, a production line for scientific and technical instruments doesn't exist. Science and technological projects spanning several years are set up to develop a tailored instrument.

Each year, during the European Space Weather Week (ESWW) conference, people from all over the world gather in Belgium to discuss the newest insights in space weather and try to find appropriate answers to the challenges and threats that space weather imposes. The meeting in 2014 was the eleventh edition, with more than 400 participants. Several communities - scientists, navigation based industry, space agencies, engineers, forecast centers, energy suppliers, space tourism, etc. - are involved in space weather in some way. The ESWW offers the platform to exchange knowledge and blend.
