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.
