Where to find kp index real-time data?


Recommended Posts

There is no real-time Kp data. Kp index is derived from the magnetometer readings of several stations. Depending on the deflection of those magnetometer readings, stands a local K-indice. The Kp index gets updated every 3 hours based on the data of the previous 3 hours. 
swpc provides only threshold alerts, just like we provide, when Kp reaches active levels or storm levels during a three hour period.

if you want to have “live” Kp data, try some magnetometer data. For example the Kiruna magnetometer station provides such a service based on the magnetometer readings from their station.

Try the following, which gives interactive, accessible data = http://flux.phys.uit.no/geomag.html   : Data for the last 24 hrs  =  http://flux.phys.uit.no/Last24/  I find it highly useable.

http://flux.phys.uit.no/Last24 only provided image instead of text for kp index, is there any text version for this link?

Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks, to everyone very much for any suggestions (^v^)
