Dark Plasma Eruption:
On Sept.30th, a massive plume of dark plasma erupted from sun's western
limb. A bright CME flew away from the blast site and might sideswipe
Earth's magnetic field on Oct. 3rd. Check http://spaceweather.com for geomagnetic storm and aurora forecasts.
Daytime Meteor Shower:
As October begins, a radar in Canada is detecting echoes from a fairly
strong meteor shower. The source appears to be debris from asteroid
2005 UD. Don't bother looking for these meteors because they are
streaking across the daytime sky, overwhelmed by the glare of the sun.
You can, however, hear their radar echoes.
