Prepper News Watch

Heads Up: A massive sunspot is producing very large CMEs and flares. Scientists are concerned as the spot moves to aim toward earth. This doesn’t mean that this sunspot is our death knell, but it’s a reminder that there are forces beyond our control that we should be preparing for.

From “Giant sunspot AR1944 is directly facing Earth and crackling with solar flares. Yesterday, Jan. 7th, an X1-class explosion in the sunspot’s magnetic canopy hurled a CME in our direction. Sky watchers shoud be alert for auroras on Jan. 9th when the cloud arrives. NOAA forecasters estimate a 60% chance of strong geomagnetic storms”
