Animation of Approaching Potent Solar Proton Pulse Storm from Sunspot 1402!

Sunspot 1402 is spitting out a whole lot of energy these days. The animated .gif above shows that the solar storm will hit the Earth tomorrow morning. However, there is no word on whether there will be electronic chaos on the planet.

Late Sunday, the sun aimed a huge coronal mass ejection (CME) at our planet, along with a "solar energetic particle" event – the largest since September 2005 – which is expected to cause a solar storm of highly energetic protons to hit us on Tuesday at 9am Eastern Time, plus or minus seven hours.
