Heads up!


There has apparently been a bit of a fuss on the surface of the Sun and while the eruption isn't aimed in our direction, some of it might come our way.

Possibly enough for a decent Aurora on the night of the 8th, 9th and maybe 10th June.

At the moment it's after 2 am on 10th June (GMT) and no sign of activity here. If it happens, it might happen tonight in other parts of the world or it might be tomorrow night.

Although with the current state of science, it might not happen at all.

I hope it does. It's years since I last saw it.

Update 12th June: No sign of any auroras here. Looks like it was just another baseless scare story.

I suppose we'd better get used to them. So-called 'science' gets most of its funding this way now.
