    Biggest Solar Storm in Years Is Bombarding Earth Now

    "Experts also predict that the magnetic storm will likely enhance normal aurora displays (also known as the northern and southern lights). As the effects of the CME bombard Earth, these stunning light shows will be especially visible for people where it is currently night, though the full moon of March, which also occurs Thursday, may interfere with the display."

    I'd be interested to hear if you see the northern lights tonight or have photos you can link.

    Old news. I remember reading about this last year and the conspiracy nuts we all saying this would knock the power grids out in over half the world. So on that note, the sky is falling!!!

    Sorry I am just responding. My bunker does not get good reception. Um no Tom is not here yet. Waiting on him and Travolta right now.

    On a serious note, those Northern lights are really cool to see. I remember one time seeing them East of the Quad Cities which is as far south as I've ever noticed them.

    I hope to see them tonight. The article said the moon may be a factor but I hope they are bright enough to see anyway.
