Dear Chris,

What sort of affect will the CME (coronal mass ejection), which is heading for us on the 19th or Tuesday 20th.

Also the earth is warming up because the Sun is far more active now then ever before, isn't it?

Kind Regards
Dave

What do you think?

Well; we will have to be careful in our predictions; the event has already happened, it seems. We probably saw some nice aurora effects; and maybe had some radio disruption here and there.
