Welcome to The Chip Witch!

After almost a year of development, we're thrilled to welcome you to The Chip Witch!

We have always felt that traditional astrology, while powerful and majestic, is no different than any other aspect of human life. That is, it expands, grows, and learns as we do. Not until relatively recent times did we know of the outer planets, yet when we did discover them, we also found that they fit in perfectly. We discovered, we learned, and we grew.

At the Chip Witch, we have computers and we use them. We have developed a more accurate calculation system for knowing where the planets are, where they're going, and making that information available. We also tap in to other data about our solar system, especially the daily activity of the sun. Its energetic nature is always in flux, sometimes quiet and sometimes quite active. We monitor and modify our output in real time. Your NASA and NOAA tax dollars at work!

Finally, we acknowledge that the Universe isn't a deterministic place. We tap into the quantum nature of nature and use real quantum noise generators to feed into what used to be a very slow and manual process. With this more modern source of randomness, we also eliminate personal bias and let the Universe speak in its own voice.

Solar Activity
Solar activity was at moderate levels. Region 3078 (S24W62, Dac/beta-gamma-delta) produced the majority of X-ray activity, the largest of which was an M1/Sn flare at 19/0444 UTC. A Type II (est. 410 km/s) and Type IV radio sweeps, along with a tenflare (150 sfu), were observed with the event. Forecaster analysis/WSA Enlil modelling are underway for this event and the earlier CME associated with a C4 flare at 18/2240 UTC. Coronal dimming was observed in SDO/AIA 193 imagery near the flare site.
Solar Wind
Solar wind parameters, as measured by the DSCOVR spacecraft, reflected enhancements from a negative polarity CH HSS and arrival of one of the many CMEs that left the sun this week near 19/1700 UTC. Total magnetic field strength increased from 5-12 nT. Solar wind speeds increased from near 550 km/s to a peak of 675 km/s. Phi angle was predominantly oriented in the negative sector.
Energetic Particle
The greater than 2 MeV electron flux reached high levels with CME/HSS influences. The greater than 10 MeV proton flux remained near background values.
