The fiery sun fires again

A long duration C9 eruption around sunspot 2297 hurled a coronal mass ejection (CME) into space and may have a small Earth directed component...

This comes after the X class solar flare emitted from the sun late last week, that one was also earth directed.

The newest flare certainly is not as strong as the X class beast that fired, but each flare is different. And each flare should be watched for its effects on the earth's magnetic safety net and radio signals and other terrestrial satellites in orbit..

The glancing blows seem to be getting repetitious. Either something big is constantly being averted and luck will run out, or that magnetic field is being controlled by a greater force that is protecting Earth..

One day, as we know and have been warned, luck will run out.
