BMSW plasma spectrometer has registered events during the magnetic storm

As to the night from August 5th to August 6th a strong disturbance of the interplanetary magnetic field reached the Earth, thus instigating the beginning of an intense magnetic storm. The BMSV plasma spectrometer was unfortunately switched off for data analysis after the commencment and resumed observations in the morning, August 6th. Even though it has registered plasma disturbances in the 'tail' of the magnetic storm.
