Sun spit out Earth-directed coronal mass ejection March 15






At 2:54 a.m. EDT (6:54 UTC) on March 15, the sun erupted with an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection (CME). The CME left the sun at speeds of around 900 miles per second (1,450 km), which is a fairly fast speed for CMEs. Its effects are expected to reach Earth in one to three days, bringing with them the potential for beautiful auroras at high latitudes. These events also have the potential to affect electronic systems in satellites and on the ground, but, historically, CMEs at this speed have caused mild to moderate effects at Earth.

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of texting teenagers cried out in terror and were suddenly unable to hit send. I fear something fantastic has happened.

Is that a prerequisite?

Double up on the tin-foil hat? Would that help any?



Point or no point?

Good, I won't remember it either way.

If all the lights go out, the woman across the street has humongous titties I've been dying to get a hold of. I'm going over there and cop a feel.
