Magnetic Storm

There's a huge magnetic storm on the sun - it just blew off the edge of the solar corona an hour ago, and its heading towards us. If you get yourself away from the city and its attendant light pollution - somewhere north, you may be able to see the Aurora Borealis tonight at around midnight. The storm will take a day to reach us - the explosion on the sun consisted of a stream of charged particles that will blast into earth in another 14 hours.
