QUOTE (dtolman @ Sep 16 2018, 11:23 PM) *
As of a week later, I see its spiking a lot higher, then started dropping rapidly - for those of us following along at home - if this would follow the v1 plot, would this then crash to the floor?

dilo included a nice plot of the V1 data in post 86 showing how the >0.5 MeV proton rate crashed to 2.1 and >70 MeV rose less dramatically to 2.26 ct/s. The latest modeling I've read about suggests that the boundary is (or was in 2017) moving outward while V2 is catching up to it. If the boundary breathes in and out, V2 may cross it more than once, making things a bit confusing. The web-page tools that let you make your own plots seem to have lost access to the latest data in the intervening years so we'll just have to wait for what they give us every few days. (Sorry, I can't figure out how to post dilo's plot directly here.)

The plots are continuing to look very promising, and they were updated not once but twice(!) today, after many months of couple-times-a-week. I'd bet the >0.5 MeV rate is below 10 ct/s by the end of next week and then we'll see it in the news.

Well, I was too optimistic about the timing, but there is some attention in the news. Not really any new info there, but yes, we are officially getting close.

Edit: Note that although the plots say "6-Hour Avg" they are actually 12-hour aves. They switched several months ago (or maybe a year or two)--don't know why.

The >70 Me V just need to climb from 2.05 to 2.25 and the >0.5 Me V drop from 27 to about 2. Hoping by the end of the Month...
