MAGNIFICENT SOLAR FLARE: A visually beautiful solar flare erupted from the east limb of the sun today. Extreme UV radiation briefly ionized the upper layers of Earth's atmosphere; otherwise, our planet was not in the line of fire. The responsible sunspot will turn toward Earth in the days ahead, boosting chances for geoeffective solar activity as the week unfolds.
