Hey Look the Sky Is Burning

According to Space.com there was a large M1 solar flare a few days ago that ejected a lot (over a billion tons) of plasma.  Well that plasma is heading this way and is expected to hit Earth sometime this afternoon or evening.  No, this does not mean the end of the world, but it does mean that there is a good chance that the northern lights will be visible much further south than they normally are.  If you are outside this evening cast your gaze to the north and you might be treated to a show.
