I Promised You Auroras

For anyone pondering the activity of our sun – The solar magnetic storm of the past few days has delivered.  Solar energy hurled our way over the last couple of days may be on its last gasp, as the current solar storm is settling down, yet it delivered an amazing display of Auroras for anyone lucky enough to be within the Auroral Oval.

I encourage everyone to bookmark spaceweather.com, linked below. Check it every day. Did you know that solar wind is measured in Km/second? Try to wrap your head around a speed of 500 Km/sec.
