Monster Solar Storm. We're all going to die!
Ok, probably not, but it is the biggest solar storm observed in years.
The cool thing is it should create a great Aurora Borealis.

Big Solar Storm

Lucradis, the news here says if you're in BC and it's clear, you might be able to see the Northern Lights tonight at midnight.

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

RE: Monster Solar Storm. We're all going to die!
That's pretty cool. Too bad we're supposed to have clouds.... damn.
I missed an opportunity to see the Aurora Borealis about eight years ago too. It was there but I was drunk and passed out. One of my buddies kept calling my house trying to wake me up. Oh well. Maybe before I die I'll have to actually go and see them.

It's also too bad that the solar storm wasn't strong enough to disable all cell phone and wifi communication, just for a day. It would be funny to see everyone looking up... seeing the world for the first time. Trying desperately to remember how to talk using your mouth and not your fingers.

We have variable clouds tonight where I am. I am hoping to sneak and capture some sweet sky in between. Hopefully it is mostly clear.

I took these two photos night before last. I was JUST setting up, these are literally my first two pics while I was still adjusting exposure and composition and then it clouded right over. I was sad.

Oh wow!
These are very cool. Seeing the Northern Lights is one of the few things on my bucket list that wouldn't be that difficult to accomplish.

Let's all pray for clear skies tonight so you can get some more shots! Tongue

Where I live we see them all the time. It's actually a shame that people around here don't appreciate the northern lights more. That said, most of the time they are fairly dim, so I'm hoping for a good show tonight!

So many cats, so few good recipes.
