Small solar storm headed our way

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has captured what appears to be a disturbance on the sun.  On Sunday, August 1, the entire Earth-facing side of the sun erupted in a series of activities including a C3-class solar flare, a solar tsunami, multiple filaments of magnetism lifting off the stellar surface, large-scale shaking of the solar corona, radio bursts, and a coronal mass ejection.  This solar activity will produce high-latitude auroras tonight.
