these things happen all the time, don't they? As far as I know, these events weren't extraordinary in relative terms.

And I have just watched 2012 the movie. Is this the beginning? Get ready people.

I will be interesting to see what effect that is going to have when all the dust reaches earth. Although it was a major event, it wasn't directly towards the earth, but there is bound to be some consequences to radio communications. I'll let you know in a few days time.

Maybe a nice Aurora up in Scotland?
