Metal prints (ChromaLuxe Photo Panels): Two independent and highly respected research and testing laboratories have conducted environmental life tests on ChromaLuxe Photo Panels and have clearly concluded that ChromaLuxe HD Metal prints are the longest lasting photo medium in the market. The first laboratories’ testing replicated the effects of incandescent lighting along with indirect natural sunlight against the likelihood of noticeable fading over time. ChromaLuxe was compared against the top three long-lasting (archival) photo papers with test results showing that ChromaLuxe lasts twice as long as the next closest photo paper and four times longer than the third best photo paper.

The aurora activity index Kp-index ranges from 0-9 with 0 being the lowest amount of activity and 9 being the greatest. Here's a good short tearm forcasting site and a good 30 day forcasting site.
