excitement for geeks

If I had been awake last night around 1am and away from city lights I could have looked up and seen something like this red glow near Sacramento. I bring you this image after a tip from daisydumont alerted me to the fact that we have been and are still weathering a geomagnetic storm caused by one of the most massive solar flares which we have ever recorded the sun flinging our way.

more news at spaceweather.com. you folks in Washington should drive out somewhere dark tonight for a chance for more auroral spectacles. here is an image from the Spokane Valley last night. apparently we in the southern latitudes are not likely to see any more tonight.
