Aurora Alert Tonight

Image from Wikipedia
The sun released a huge flare this morning.  It's expected to hit the earth's atmosphere on March 8th at 0625 UT + or - 7 hours.  That's as early as tonight for Seattle viewers.  So check out the sky tonight, you might see a celestial show.  Here is a link to an incredible 3D forecast map of the CME prepared by NASA.
