BIG HOLE IN THE SUN'S ATMOSPHERE: A large, canyon-shaped hole has
opened in the sun's atmosphere, and it is spewing a stream of solar
wind toward Earth. Polar geomagnetic storms are likely when the
fast-moving stream arrives, probably on Feb 1st. Visit today's edition
of Spaceweather.com for more information.
SUNSET SKY SHOW: For
the next two nights, watch the southwestern sky at sunset. Mars, Venus
and the crescent Moon are converging for a beautiful gathering in the
evening twilight. Visit Spaceweather.com for sky maps and photos.
