Mass Coronal Ejection from the Sun..

Postby Karlsweldt » Fri Sep 12, 2014 3:11 pm

There was a massive coronal ejection (sun spot) recently. It peaked on Sept. 11, and those lucky enough to live far North or South may witness some rare Aurora Borealis or Aurora Australis on Sept. 12.
The link has some videos of the recent activity, plus other good info about sun spots and the Auroras.

Video was taken at Lockheed Martin Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory.

There may be some severe interference with satellite communications.. and other electronic gear.
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!
