Space Station

This app/site provides forecast information of flare and aurora.

Solar storm makes big impact on human health and economy. It may disturb not only astronauts but also our daily lives such as power supplies, machines, mobile & land telephony network, satellites, cars, and various other wireless communications. However, the existing observatory data are too difficult for non subject matter experts to understand. This app/website aims to provide current & future status of solar flare in a much general, understandable, non-expert-friendly manner, just like using typical weather forecast apps/sites.
