She added this morning: “Solarstorm & Aurora 5-day Outlook: Busy week with a triple risk! A a giant solarstorm storm is coming sandwiched between a glancing blow from a earlier solarstorm and a few quick photo voltaic wind.”
A comparatively weak C-class photo voltaic flare blasted from the earth-facing facet of the Solar on Thursday final week.
Whereas Dr Tony Phillips of spaceweather.com acknowledged that these flares are often unremarkable, this one lasted for practically 12 hours.
