The Sun Erupts (possibility of Aurora)
Sunspot Group 1261 has been basting out flares like crazy, with a very strong M9 flare just recently. According to Space weather the first of the coronal mass ejections should hit us at around 9 am Friday morning (plus or minus 7 hours).
Another may follow, and the most recent and powerful wasn't really aimed at Earth. Still, things are looking up aurora wise.
