According to Spaceweather, a huge solar flare erupted – biggest in a decade – one week ago. A shock wave of magnetized protons from it hit the earth tonight at about 1 UTC causing potential damage to computer and electronic equipment. It’s completely harmless to living things, however. Oh yes, and keep your eyes peeled for aurora in the skies tonight!
