The weather, including solar and lunar activity, and fluctuations in the Earth’s geomagnetic field, is known to play a role in increased paranormal activity. For more information please read Weather and Geothermic Conditions that Affect Paranormal Activity in the SOuLSPI Articles section.

Geomagnetic Field and Solar Activity Monitors
The geomagnetic field is the magnetic field observed in and around the earth. The intensity of the magnetic field at the earth’s surface is approximately 0.32 gauss at the equator and 0.62 gauss at the north pole. A geomagnetic storm is a worldwide disturbance of the earth’s magnetic field, distinct from regular diurnal variations.

About the Solar X-ray status monitor
The Solar X-ray status monitor downloads data periodically from the NOAA Space Environment Center FTP server. The previous 24 hours of 5 minute Long-wavelength X-ray data from each satellite (GOES 8 and GOES 10) is analyzed, and an appropriate level of activity for the past 24 hours is assigned as follows:
NORMAL: Solar X-ray flux is quiet (<1.00e-6 W/m^2)
ACTIVE: Solar X-ray flux is active (>= 1.00e-6 W/m^2)
M CLASS FLARE: An M Class flare has occurred (X-ray flux >= 1.00e-5 W/m^2)
X CLASS FLARE: An X Class flare has occurred (X-ray flux >= 1.00e-4 W/m^2)
MEGA FLARE: An unprecedented X-ray event has occurred (X-ray flux >= 1.00e-3 W/m^2).
About the Geomagnetic Field status monitor
QUIET: the Geomagnetic Field is quiet (Kp<4)
ACTIVE: the Geomagnetic Field has been unsettled (Kp=4)
STORM: A Geomagnetic Storm has occurred (Kp>4)
