BREAKING: Major Solar Flare

The sun ejected a significant solar flare this evening, the largest since July 2000. It remains to be seen at this time but a CME (coronal mass ejection) may be heading toward the Earth. According to Brad Panovich, Chief Meteorologist at WCNC-TV in Charlotte, there are already some impacts on radio and global positioning systems.

Important for skywatchers is an increasing chance of seeing the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) during the next few nights. The storm of similar magnitude in 2000 allowed the Northern Lights to be seen as far south as North Carolina.

Our sky will be cloudy Wednesday night and clear Thursday night. -ES
