Next up, the AR 1515 ban.

Full Moon + (Haze + Smog) + Latitude + "glancing blow" = not very good northern lights

Serious question: Why has NASA not bought rights to that song from Matt Stone to play over PA systems during launches?

I'm guessing three or four too many f-bombs for the junior space cadets?

No word on what regions might get to see the auroras? Are they going to be visible in more areas than normal? How far south? Sure, they might not have a precise number, but Jesus people, at least ballpark it. I saw the northern lights in southern Idaho when I was a kid, it's only 150 or so miles due north of me now, does this mean that I'll be able to see them again? A few more details would be nice.

It's summer, I'm not waiting until 1 or 2am when it finally get's dark enough to see them.

It also destroyed many, many planets, including two gangster planets and a cowboy world.

Will this disrupt the TDF coverage?

Heard some good "Sunbursts" on 6 and 2 meters this morning. Seemed to hit 2 meters and then seconds later down to 6.

We had some decent Aurora early Monday morning (Eastern Manitoba) but the damn moon washed them out

Think I'll keep an ear out. Generally I've got the 2 meter rig at home on 146.520 FM simplex, but maybe I'll put it on the 144.200 USB calling frequency tomorrow. I probably should bring the 6 meter rig in from the car, but I don't have a good 6 meter antenna up at the house.
