Planetary activity/eclipses

A widespread display of auroras erupted late Friday, Aug. 5th, when a double-CME hit Earth's magnetic field and sparked a G4-category geomagnetic storm.

July 12th, Minor Cme due to hit magnetic field today.

This partial solar eclipse is visible only from a small part of the ocean between Antarctica and southern Africa, but the alignment is significant. As the Sun and Moon meet in Cancer, they align with the great star Sirius and form a Grand Cross in cardinal signs (Sun-Moon opposing Pluto in Capricorn; Saturn in Libra opposing Uranus in Aries).

Just heard some interesting info from Tracy
who is chief investigator on all things cosmological here at work.

on 4th march comet elenis which is possibly a brown dwarf star
enters our inner solar system. At the same time the 3 sunspots
I was talking about a couple of weeks ago will also be facing
earth. The gravitational pull is expected to cause a lot
of electromagnetic energy.
APPROACHING ACTIVE REGION: A significant active region is set to emerge over the sun's northeastern limb. The underlying sunspots are not yet visible from Earth, but the region's towering magnetic canopy is already in view. Recent movies beamed back by STEREO-B show flashes of extreme UV radiation and hints of magnetic instability. This could herald a period of renewed solar activity when the region turns toward Earth in the days ahead. Or the action could peter out beforehand
