Strong Solar Activity Could Spark Auroras

Source - Space Weather News for Sept. 7, 2011:

STRONG SOLAR ACTIVITY: On Sept. 6th, active sunspot 1283 produced two major eruptions including an impulsive X2-class solar flare. The blasts hurled a pair of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) toward Earth, which could spark geomagnetic activity when they arrive on Sept. 8-10.

High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras in the nights ahead. Check for images and updates.
