SpaceWeatherLive is now available in Russian!

Exciting news just before we say goodbye to 2017 and welcome 2018: our website is now available in Pусский! Yes, in Russian! This is the eight language already that we can offer to our visitors. The other seven languages that we have for you are English, Spanish, German, French, Dutch, Polish and Swedish!

The translation is complete but still in beta as our translator cleans up the translation in the coming weeks. The translation was done what has to be a record time by Alexander Lemeshko (radio amateur call: R2FBT) and we thank him immensely for his hard work! Spatziba!
