    Awesome movie, should've gone on longer.

    Looks like I have one more excuse not to go outside this week. ;)

    It probably stopped working after that flare LOL............Other spacecraft are having problems:

    NASA's ACE spacecraft, which measures the solar wind, is temporarily overwhelmed by the ongoing radiation storm. Solar wind values reported above are unreliable until further notice.

    A major geomagnetic storm is currently underway.

    Speaking of movies, I'm going to bet this will be the next step for Hollywood's natural disaster flicks. I hate hollywood.
