Namimbia Neutron Monitor is active!

We see activity today in Namimbia's Neutron Monitor. Often this is a precursor.

Tsumeb – Namibia
(190 12' S, 170 35' E, altitude 1240 m.a.s.l., ambient atmospheric pressure 660 mm Hg)
The 18NM64 neutron monitor operates at a research station that was established by the Max Planck Institue for Aeronomy in 1957 for ionospheric observations during the IGY. Presently, the station is maintained by the Geological Survey of Namibia. The station is situated about 12 kilometers north-west from the town of Tsumeb, in the northern part of Namibia. The photograph of the buildings was taken from one of the high towers of the ionosonde antenna on the site.
