AURORA WATCH: A magnetic filament on the sun erupted during the late
hours of Sept. 10th, hurling a bright coronal mass ejection (CME) into
space. The CME is not heading directly for Earth, but the cloud's
southern flank could deliver a glancing blow to our planet's magnetic
field on Sept. 12th or (more likely) Sept. 13th. People in
Alaska, Canada, Iceland, Greenland and Scandinavia should be alert for
Northern Lights in the nights ahead. Check

prompted this alert.
