SOLAR WIND, INCOMING: A canyon-shaped hole in the sun's atmosphere is spewing a stream of solar wind toward Earth. Polar geomagnetic storms could begin as early as Feb. 28th when the leading edge of the stream reaches our planet. NOAA forecasters estimate a 60% chance of G1-class storms on March 1st when Earth is fully enveloped by the fast-moving solar wind. More information @ Spaceweather.com
SUNSET PLANETS: When the sun goes down tonight, step outside and look west. The skinny crescent Moon is approaching Venus for a side-by-side gathering on Feb. 28th.
