“OMG we’re all gonna die”

Class X solar flare today

  Class X7 solar flare, viewed at 3:48am EDT today, August 9. A short guide to solar flares class types, from NASA. Class X is the biggest one, the kind that may disrupt communications. This one will mostly miss us, phew. The (hopefully minimal) magnetic storm is expected on Earth August 11.
