SpaceWeatherLive is now available in the Latvian language! Active forum member @MeteoLatvia  has made a lot of effort in translating SpaceWeatherLive to his native language. After some testing and minor adjustments he was ready to make it public, so big shoutout to @MeteoLatvia! With Latvian added, we now have 20 languages on SpaceWeatherLive!

Some languages still needs some updates, anyone who wants to help out can apply on our Translation platform. Just register and make a request with some motivation and you can get started. Translation platform: https://translate.spaceweatherlive.com 

We thank all translators for their hard work into translating SWL and making the updates as we update the site and app.

Introducing archive calendar viewing modes!

A short while ago someone on the forum made a good comment about searching for days with solar radiation storms and that got us thinking how we could improve our archive for that. Until today on the archive calendar view we had below each days two values: max solar flare for that day and the finalized Kp. Adding extra values would make it not readable anymore. Plus the downside also was that on a mobile device you couldn't even see these values as the screen width was too small to display both values.

So today we are announcing viewing modes for the archive calendar view to make browsing the archive  more convenient. To start we have three different calendar views: Kp, Solar flares and Solar radiation storms. More views could be added in the future, based on archived data, we're open for suggestions. Below the calendar you can switch between the three modes, Kp will be the default one. On mobile devices it will be a lot more easier to view the interesting days. When you browse the archive it will show the selected view mode so you can quickly find interesting days, found a date you like just click on the day to open the archive of that day with plenty more data to crunch on. 

As an example here's how March 2024 looks with the three viewing modes:

We’ve added a new ‘hidden’ feature to the site and app. It’s now possible to have most graphs in local time! Just give a tap on the clock on the bottom right of the app to switch, on the site you can do the same. 
The archive will stay in UTC, as well as Kp-index. Solar flare start/max/end times will also stay in UTC

The top 50 geomagnetic storms gets a makeover!

After the Mothers day storm there was some nice discussions on the forum about the strength of it and how it would rank in the top geomagnetic storms list and up until now it was based on the Ap index as primary ranking with max Kp as secondary. But when you browse for past major storms like the Halloween storms (2003), Quebec storms (1989) strong geomagnetic storms are mostly ranked according to the Dst index. 
With the help of @Philalethes for providing the base dump of archived Dst since 1957 we got started with a revamp of the top list by incorporating the Dst index into the big SpaceWeatherLive archive. So starting from now the storms since 1957 are ranked according to the strongest Dst index. Data from 1932 to 1957 will still be browsable but are ranked with the old method since Dst was only available since 1957. Besides the Dst, we'll also show the Ap-index and max Kp. And for dates past 1998 we'll also show the max solar wind speed and max IMF strength and direction!
Plenty to dig into the new top lists 😉 

Dst index will also be daily updated so the lists for this cycle will update as well.
