weather and you: videos to watch.
By now you will have heard of Jae Kamel and his partner Jone Dae. From their third List, called Jae Kamel’s URLs “The Legendary Journeys Continue…”,
I’m sharing with you the Category, I. Daily Awareness. These links or URLs are the sites you should look at every day, if you want to know what the world is doing,
and what the sun and solar system are doing. Also other “Awareness” links there as well.
Jae and Jone spend thousands of hours making these Lists for us, for you and me, and updating and re-checking them, and so on. Thank them if you like these links.

http://iswa.ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov:8080/IswaSystemWebApp/ }The integrated Space Weather Analysis System (iSWA) was developed to resolve a critical agency challenge: to accurately specify and forecast both the large‐scale and local space environments and their probable impacts for NASA missions. The iSWA system also addressees the technical challenge of presenting actionable space weather information in a form that is both easily accessible and useful to the NASA customer. All consumable iSWA system data products are referred to as “cygnets”. Each cygnet conveys specific space weather data or information for a specific region, effect, or measurement. The cygnets can be organized into categories or browsed collectively using the iSWA cygnet selection panel.
The resulting iSWA system is a flexible, web‐based dissemination system for NASA‐relevant space weather information that combines forecasts from state‐of‐the‐art space weather models with concurrent space environment information from observations. iSWA is customer configurable.
http://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/spacewarn/ }The SPACEWARN Bulletin is issued at the first of each month and provides a listing of launches and brief details of each launch from the preceding month. March 2013 Update: “With the recent ending of the World Data Center system and their subsequent incorporation into the ICSU World Data System, NSSDC has suspended the publication of the monthly SPACEWARN Bulletin. Consequently issue 692 (July 2011) of the bulletin was the last one to be published. All past electronically accessible issues will continue to be available through the NSSDC, but no new issues will be forthcoming. NSSDC will continue to support documenting spacecraft launches, especially those of interest to the science community. The information from SPACEWARN has always been placed in the NSSDC Master Catalog (NMC). Spacecraft from any given month will continue to be inserted and updated as information becomes available and (with the NMC interface) users can generate monthly listings of spacecraft information or create other queries. NSSDC thanks the SPACEWARN community for their interest and support over the past decades. We hope that our continuing services are also valuable to you. “
http://stereo.gsfc.nasa.gov/ }Welcome to the STEREO website!
STEREO consists of two space-based observatories – one ahead of Earth in its orbit, the other trailing behind. With this new pair of viewpoints, scientists will be able to see the structure and evolution of solar storms as they blast from the Sun and move out through space.
The STEREO Science Center serves the following functions: Archive for STEREO telemetry, mission support data, and higher level instrument data and analysis software. Processing center for STEREO space weather beacon data. Focal point for science coordination.

http://gong.nso.edu/data/magmap/ondemand.html }The Global Oscillation Network Group (GONG) is a community-based program to conduct a detailed study of solar internal structure and dynamics using helioseismology. In order to exploit this new technique, GONG has developed a six-station network of extremely sensitive, and stable velocity imagers located around the Earth to obtain nearly continuous observations of the sun’s “five-minute” oscillations, or pulsations.
http://gong.nso.edu/data/magmap/index.html }NOTICE: Detailed analysis of the GONG synoptic maps showed an apparent motion of the polar field with a 1-year periodicity — an artifact arising from insufficient treatment of the effects of limb noise in our data processing pipeline. We have reprocessed all data presented here to remove this artifact from all synoptic maps and models.
However, the reprocessing cadence from 2006-09-17 through 2008-03-20 was every six hours, or four synoptic maps per day. On 2008-03-20 normal one synoptic map per hour processing continued.

Hundreds of satellites are visible to the unaided eye; thousands are visible using binoculars and telescopes. Observing satellites has many enthusiasts around the world.”
