STORM WARNING CANCELLED:  A pair of CMEs launched into space on July 26th by erupting solar filaments will apparently miss Earth. The odds of a geomagnetic storm this weekend are low.

Our universe is so amazing.  We have so little knowledge of what it is all about, and things like this give my heart a thrill.  I have such a thirst and desire to learn more about they how's and why's of these kinds of things.  Thanks for sharing this.

I found it interesting the clouds were so far south on the planet... Extremely rare but it has happened before...

Slight increase in sun activity but still below a C2.

"MOSTLY QUIET:  Solar activity remains low. The only action on the Earthside of the sun is a minor crackling of C-class solar flares from departing sunspot AR1800. NOAA forecasters estimate a 10% chance of M-class flares and no more than a 1% chance of X-flares on July 31st."

SPACE WEATHER FACT CHECK:  Many readers are asking about a report in the Washington Examiner, which states that a Carrington-class solar storm narrowly missed Earth two weeks ago. There was no Carrington-class solar storm two weeks ago. On the contrary, solar activity was low throughout the month of July. The report is erroneous. The possibility of such a storm is, however, worth thinking about: A modern Carrington event would cause significant damage to our high-tech society.

MAGNETIC FIELD REVERSAL ON THE SUN:  It hasn't happened yet, but it's about to. Data from NASA-supported observatories show that the sun's global magnetic field will flip before the end of 2013. The reversal, which signals the arrival of Solar Maximum, will have ripple effects felt throughout the solar system.
