STRONG SOLAR ACTIVITY: On Sept. 6th, active sunspot 1283 produced two major
eruptions including an impulsive X2-class solar flare. The blasts hurled a
pair of coronal mass ejections (CMEs) toward Earth, which could spark
geomagnetic activity when they arrive on Sept. 8-10. High-latitude sky
watchers should be alert for auroras in the nights ahead. Check
