I have been following Phil Plait’s Bad Astronomy blog for several years now and I must say he is one intelligent man. He does a great job of explaining a lot of astronomical events and concepts so that the basic person can understand him. I tend to agree with a lot of what he says and would love the opportunity to meet him some day. Since he is not a recluse and tends to travel to a bunch of different events, hopefully I will have that chance sometime in the not so distant future.
Today, Phil brings us a great article on a solar coronal mass ejection that might increase the aurora displays tonight. If you live in an area where you can see those (I am not privileged having my current residence in Tampa, Florida), hopefully you get the chance to see it. Head on over to his blog and read his article titled Sun blows out another big one, expect aurorae tonight!.
