REVISED FORECAST: The CME launched toward Earth by yesterday’s X-flare is moving faster than originally thought. Analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab have revised their forecast accordingly, advancing the cloud’s expected arrival time to 09:17 UT (5:17 am EDT) on Saturday, July 14th. Weekend auroras are likely.
Now that the fast-as-light and faster-than-light things have arrived, now we wait until Saturday morning for the next wave!
Many thanks to John G for sending us this awesome image of our Star taken with welder’s glasses and something else, we’ll follow up with him really soon!
Now, check out the protons and electrons! Of course we’ll have the Surface Heat Index (SHI) at the top, think we’ll see it a homogenous color next year?
