Look at the reading for the 5th compared to the 7th of the SOI
index. Seems like that is evidence of that "transient" event you
speak of. Could you be a little more specific about what that
means? Also, note that with the absence of flaring and the growing
distance from the sun with the earth's elliptical orbit, the SIZE of
that La Nina wind.

activity, and there was no coronal hole activity to justify the
increase in solar wind speed and density. There is no mention of any
significant activity on any of the space weather websites that would
be related to it. There was a CME seen a couple of days earlier, but
it was what is called a backside event, meaning it shot off of the
opposite side of the sun from us. Beats the heck outta me!
