From the "how do we know this?" file -- comes this report today from the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (I don't get this channel on cable...):
The sun had two (2) solar flares yesterday and two (2) coronal mass ejections -- THAT SOUNDS SERIOUS...
Whatever all that means, around 1:25 AM ET TONIGHT -- these particles, which are hurling towards earth at 3 million to 4 million miles an hour -- could begin causing disruption to GPS, power grids, and some air flights near the poles. Stay tuned!
