Caption: Interior view of the Space Environment Services Centre at Boulder, Colorado, one of four places in the world that forecast solar weather & its impact on Earth. Sunstorms can dramatically affect life on Earth; geomagnetic storms cause power surges, disrupt telecommunications & interfere with navig- ational systems. The Center can alert the world to an impending magnetic storm within minutes. Solar activity is continuously monitored; magnetometers around the globe record the state of the Earth's magnetic field; neutron monitors count cosmic rays; ground-based solar telescopes generate radio and magnetic maps of the Sun; and orbiting weather satellites monitor the Sun & near-Earth space. Astrophysical forecaster is David Rose.
