I have created a new way for people to display field statistics on their webpage, which I call "Paranormal Weather Images". These images include current geomagnetic field data, X-Ray flux data, moon data, and even a forecast of good dates for paranormal activity. All of these images can be placed on your website using the code available here. Detailed information about each image and it's contents is below:
This image shows the current geomagnetic field status, X-Ray flux status, and moon data. The Geomagnetic Field Status is calculated by downloading Kp indexes for the past 24 hours. The Kp index is a measurement of how much the planetary geomagnetic field deviated from the normal "quiet day" index, its value ranges from 0 (no deviation) to 9 (large deviations). A Kp of less than 4 is considered Quiet, Kp = 4 is Unsettled, and Kp >= 5 is Storm level. Storm level is then broken down into five levels, G1 through G5 (Kp=5 is G1, Kp=6 is G2, and so on). Many people believe that days with a larger Kp index have more paranormal activity than quiet days.
Solar X-Rays is a measure of electromagnetic flux levels in the .1 to .8 nanometer spectrum (Long wave). In order of magnitude, these levels can be Normal, Active, M-Class Flare, and X-Class Flare. Furthermore, the M and X-Class levels are broken down into divisions, M having 9 divisions (M1 through M9), and X having 20 divisions (X1 through X20). These values can tell us when solar flares are heading toward Earth, which often trigger geomagnetic storms within 36 hours of the X-Ray Flare. If you see a spike in the X-Ray Flux graph, keep an eye out on the geomagnetic field status, as there is a good change a storm will occur soon.
Tables at the bottom of this page show Kp and X-Ray Flux values and their corresponding activity levels. Please note that "Very Quiet", and "Semi-Quiet" aren't official levels (they are both considered "Quiet"); they have been included to increase the resolution of the scale.
Moon percent illumination and phase type (waning or waxing) is shown below that, and a current image of the moon is shown in the bottom left corner.
Geomagnetic/Moon Forecast Image:|
This image shows a forecast of good days for potential paranormal activity. The SEC (Space Environment Center) issues a daily forecast of expected maximum geomagnetic Ap values for the next 45 days. This data is downloaded, converted to Kp values, and any days that are expected to have levels of Kp = 4 or above (Unsettled or Storm levels) are included in the forecast. Though it is hard to predict future days of geomagnetic fluctuations, it's worth noting on your calendar any days in which a geomagnetic storm is expected. Also included are the dates for the next full and new moons and a current moon image, as many people consider full/new moon days increase paranormal activity. This image makes a great way to plan future investigation dates!
Moon Data Image:|
This image contains the current moon data. This includes the current illumination percentage, phase type (waxing or waning), and the dates of the next four major moon phases. Also included is a large image of the current moon.
