While highly energetic transient events create beautifully, awe-inspiring polar aurorae, they can also adversely affect the Earth and our envelope of satellites on which modern society has come to rely.

Therefore, a lot of effort is put into forecasting space weather events which, in turn, requires predicting solar flares. Follow the links below to read up on the latest innovations in space weather forecasting and coronal mass ejection tracking methods.
