A group of interested individuals has established an international chat service specifically for space weather enthusiasts, including those interested in auroral activity ("Northern Lights"). The IRC network provides interested individuals with the opportunity to chat in real-time with others having a similar interest. Information on how to connect to this internet service is available here: http://www.spaceweather-chat.info/faq.php#irc2. Solar Terrestrial Dispatch does not manage or control this service, although at the present time we do support the endeavor through the supply of data and/or reports.
For more information, questions, or concerns, please contact the team at www.spaceweather-chat.info.
