#070: Summer Outlook

April 26, 2019

#065 March Sendoff

April 1, 2019

The atmosphere sent March packing with a parting gift: a significant snowfall in NEOhio. March snowfalls aren’t all that unusual in Ohio.

#064: Northern Lights

March 22, 2019

Until March, the sun has been largely quiet in 2019. We are in a solar minimum in its 7-year sunspot cycle. However, we’ve seen a couple of interesting sunspot clusters in the last few weeks.
