Big Storm is Past, or is it??

. . . . I think it is mostly done for.

According to this article, northward oriented storms pose little threat. Southward, however, can be of the type to work us over fairly well. This article explains it clearly. Read it in its entirety.

“The orientation of the magnetic field in the CME is a big determining factor for how strong or weak the event is going to be,” Young

A Little Update on the Flare

Check out this site for its graphs and definitions. Very informative once you get your head around it. What I took away from it today was the level of HF (HiFreq) radio interference that is probable, and the radiation danger on the ISS.
