The webpage contains the latest forecasts from the National Center for Space Weather of China and alerts from the US Space Weather Prediction Center.
The contents have been significantly enhanced with more than 80 photos and illustrations used to show and explain various space weather phenomena. Some are stunning which seem like bringing you to a virtual trip of the fascinating space.
