According to the British Geological Survey, Britain should experience spectacular Northern Lights displays from today (Thursday) due to a large solar storm. This also has the potential to disrupt communication networks.

They do keep saying that these solar flare things will take out technology but the clocks are still ticking. I'm sure it'll be all over in a flash.

I am hoping, but it is very cloudy outside just now. Sad
