Solar Flare Heading Toward Earth……

NOAA forecasters estimate a greater than 25% chance of geomagnetic storms on June 9th. That’s when a Coronal Mass Ejection from the solar flare of June 7th is expected to deliver a glancing blow to Earth’s magnetic field.  Thankfully this won’t be a direct hit so minimal problems are expected.

Of course it takes some time before the CME his the earth’s magnetic field; the sun is 93 million miles away from earth.  Unfortunately it’s not strong enough to produce the aurora in our area.

    I’ve been watching 40/29 since I was real young.. and since I’m in the Army down here at Fort Hood, Texas, the only way I can keep up with news from back home is through Facebook. I really like how you guys keep everything posted! Too bad there’s not much going on in Goshen that can considered any kind of news lol
