Big night tonight!

If there are any patches of clear sky to the north tonight make sure you take a peak.

Yesterday (Tuesday) there was a major X Class flare on the Sun. This already created a Northern Lights show last night that was captured on the HD webcam (jealous!) down at skunkbayweather!

It sent a major Coronal Mass Ejection to the Earth that spaceweather.com is saying should reach Earth tonight (Wednesday) or tomorrow. When it hits it could produce a strong, and potentially disruptive geomagnetic storm.

The last time there was a major geomagnetic storm that affected Canada was in 1989 in Quebec:

The variations in the earth’s magnetic field also tripped circuit breakers on Hydro-Québec’s power grid. The utility’s very long transmission lines and the fact that most of Quebec sits on a large rock shield prevented current flowing through the earth, finding a less resistant path along the 735 kV power lines.[6]

So if your radio seems extra static-y tomorrow or TV channels goes on the blink, you know why. Check out spaceweather, it might be from the sun!
