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.)
