This makes TWO large X-class solar flares in the past 2 1/2 days -- both earth directed... Solar flares of this size can cause communication disruption, power grid failures, and aurora borealis in places further south than normal. You can see the flare on the SDO site: sdo.gsfc.nasa.gov Also worthy to note.. the SDO/green and SDO/HMI shots..... well... they show the sun THROUGH the supposed fly-by of the "planet"... This means (to me) that IF YOU CAN SEE THROUGH THE DARKNESS , then , ITS NOT A PLANET PASSING IN BETWEEN the sdo and the sun... see the green shot and HMI shot on the SDO from 3/7/2012 .
