Could see an uptick in earthquakes over the next 48 hrs. Last magnitude 6+ was on 03/08/2018.

Northern latitudes should see some great auroras.

WHAT!!!  Geeeezus!!!  I was just thinking we were past the brutal winter, spring is coming, and we made it through another season. Now this.  I am about wore out from this past winter,  hard on us down here in the hills.  Cold lasted a long time.

Well, better buckle down for a wild ride this spring and summer. At least it will be warm (er).

The "K" index is up. Who knows? Not a big deal unless we get a direct hit. And, still not that serious, I think.

I didn't see a CME notice, must have missed it?

All sorts of solar activity.  Time to get my amateur radio transceiver connected to the antenna.  It might be a wild ride!

all you're going to hear is solar noise/geo magnetic noise if it's here. HF, 3-30 MHz is most effected by these things. The higher frequencies the most. Report back on the noise quality ..

No CME, this is solar wind from a coronal hole. This is a G2 alert that earth "is" experiencing a geomagnetic storm. This is considered moderate, but does often trigger seismic activity. Wait and see scenario.

Should at least charge up the ionosphere for all you HAMs.

For sure, 80 meters has been dead.  If the sun would get back into action it would be a blessing.
