Batten down the hatches! The Sun is PISSED!
There is a massive solar storm in progress. We are currently awaiting the arrival of a coronal mass ejection (CME) to pass by earth. I dunno if this is going to cause satellite or telecommunications outages. More to come.

Been subbed to this guy for a while, taught me quite a lot.

The Guardian's hyping it for all it's worth. The flare was an impressive one but hardly unusual. I've been hoping for better but it's been a dismal solar maximum. Satellites shouldn't even notice it.

I am hoping for some good auroras though.

At a bare minimum, if we have some Alaskans or Canucks living in NT or YK, keep your eyes on the sky and get you cameras and video cameras. You should get some spectacular auroras out of this!
