Our next meeting will be held on Friday, May 26 at the Ponderosa fire station.
Join us at 6:30 for the FYI session on binoculars and then at 7:30 our featured presenter, Shawn Dahl, will be with us via Zoom for a very interesting talk about space weather.
This talk will highlight the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), space weather activity, forecasting, and potential impacts along with some historical context. Space weather has become a concern for our society due to its ability to disrupt or degrade certain types of communications and technologies. Congressional and executive legislation has been passed to improve space weather science and forecasting because of the risk for an extreme space weather event to adversely affect commerce and our way of life. Solar Cycle 25 is progressing, with solar maximum predicted to be around 2025. This presentation’s intent is to inform participants about SWPC operations, space weather storms, SWPC forecasts, and primary concerns with regards to possible impacts – such as aviation, power grid, and space operations.
