Aurora & Space Weather

Post by eclectic-tech »

A member inquired about any skins related to auroras or space weather in this post.

Skin requests are usually ignored, but I found the idea interesting, so... yeah, I put this together.

UPDATED to V1.2024.03.22A

Added 3-day bar chart with 3-hour Kp details
Added 3-day forecast

Removed weather.com as source due to unreliable data
Now all data comes from https://www.spaceweather.gov
The data is supplied by global weather services

Considering additional ideas but for now the information is accurate :Whistle
