Watch for the Aurora Borealis tonight if you have clear skies!
Eh, I know where my towel is, and I have an electronic thumb, so I should be fine. I can't seem to find my copy of the Guide, though.
It's Y2K all over again.
I hope the extent of damage is minimal. Just think if a few key satellites are damaged. Some won't have a cell phone for a while. Maybe go without TV. ...The horror.
As far as more serious concerns, I'm sure the military has contingency defenses in case the system comes crashing down.
It's gonna be interesting to see.
Sometime around 2013? More likely 2012. 2012?! We're all gonna die! We're all gonna die!
So that's how the world ends; a solar fart in our general direction.
Ain't gonna do you any good.... We Canucks are short on beer (it's been a hot summer) and if the power cuts out and what little beer we have left gets warm, we be coming down for yours! So hide your brews... and head for the hills....
Don't trust anyone who is polite, or apologizes for no good reason - they may be spy... and if you hear the word 'eh'... well, it's too late.... you've been infiltrated....
Biggest military in world can't stop 35 million desperate, thirsty, poutine eating, beer drinking, hockey playing.....
wait one ...... wait one...... hold on......
I've just been informed that Molson's has ramped up their production lines.... you're safe.... for now......
coronal mass ejection????
lol we're so insignificant. Our tiny little planet's power and communications grids can be destroyed by the sun farting.
Does this mean we're going to die? The article doesn't say so.
As long as it doesn't interrupt my flight in 2 weeks, I don't care.
I didn't see any lights last night. *aww shucks*
Us either.... though I did see great falling star, and heard some owls.
ohh welll - so not a complete write off....
We'll try again tonight.
I'll try tonight as I was too tired last night to bother watching the sky at midnight. Unfortunately, I live in/near big cities.
Hopefully it won't damage any satellites.
There was a really freak heavy thunder storm earlier, completely out of the blue*, went from sunny to storm in under 10 minutes, dunno if it's related, I thought it was quite strange, it's sunny now too.
(*It's been sunny/cloudy here everyday for weeks)
People with tin-foil hats were warning us for years. Now they have the last laugh, and the Tin-Foil Hat Co. will soon make billion$.
So since it is Wednesday I am assuming this amounted to absolutely nothing.
No... it amounted to some spectacular Northern Lights displays. My wife showed me bunch that were captured last night and posted to the web.... I don't know where she found them.... but they were spectacular.
OMG! That picture is insane.
Wow those pictures are beautiful!
Thats over Lake Superior On August 3, 2010.
I'm up now, waiting, hoping...
The sky here in Ottawa is cloudy though.
Ooh! I want to see this thing from outside like this!
Its like the fantastic 4
