Another X-flare

This morning the sun ejected a X5-class solar flare towards the Earth. Goddard Space Weather Lab experts believe the CME will reach Earth on March 8th 0625 UT (+/- 7 hrs) Experts also believe that this CME could cause strong to severe geomagnetic storms. They said sky watchers at ALL LATITUDES should be alert for auroras. From the last statement I would recommend to all viewers that it maybe a good idea to try to find a dark place to view the aurora.  Currently we are having a snow storm here in Fairbanks Alaska. The forecast is calling for cloudy or partly cloudy skies for the rest of the week. If there is a strong aurora we maybe able to see it between a break in the clouds. More news to come soon. -Troy
