Space Weather News for Sept. 7, 2011

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 http://spaceweather.com for images and updates.

Oh, goody. We had several simultaneous Blackberry failures during the last one -- and yes, I know it's unlikely, but when multiple brand new units on different networks fail catastrophically within an hour of each other on the day of a solar event strong enough to affect electronics, that failure is no longer attributable to random chance OR user error.

Hmmmm. High correlation might indicate causality...
