SOLSTICE AURORA WATCH: On June 18th, the sun produced its biggest flare in nearly two months. The M3-class explosion caused a brief low-frequency radio blackout over North America and hurled a CME into space. A glancing blow from the CME is likely on June 21st , possibly sparking a geomagnetic storm and solstice auroras. Check http://spaceweather.com for updates.
SUNSET PLANETS: When sun goes down tonight, step outside and look west. Venus, Jupiter and the crescent Moon are having a lovely conjunction in the sunset sky. Photos @ http://spaceweathergallery.com
