The Sun Becomes Very Busy

February 26, 2012; 12:40 PM

Just a real quick post here. I wanted to make sure there was something being said about how busy the Sun has become!

Well, actually, if you are a member of the AccuWeather Astronomy Facebook page, which can be joined by clicking here, you would already know since the great community here has been posting about it.

This is an exact quote from AccuWeather Astronomy Facebook page expert Daniel Vogler, "Update on the double CME blast from yesterday, the second one will be a glancing blow to earth tomorrow night, estimated Kp Index 5-6, Keep an eye out tomorrow to the north as you are star-gazing at the planetary alignments! 15% chance it will jump up to a 7, good luck my northern friends!"

So hopefully some of us will get to see some brilliant colors the next few nights. As always, if you do see some, please take some pictures and share them on Facebook.

Here are a couple of archived blogs that you can read to refresh your memory about an active Sun. Please click

here and here for a quick refresher course about solar terms and possible affects here on Earth if the Sun becomes very busy.
