A Taste of Solar Max

NASA produced video recaps X-class solar flare that hit Earth’s magnetosphere last Saturday, July 14, 2012. The four minute video labels last week’s solar flare as just a taste of things to come as we approach solar maximum in 2013. It’s of interest to hear authoritative source report as solar flare erupted from AR1520, tracked by NASA STEREO and ESA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory spacecraft on its trajectory to Earth. Yes, we can expect more Auroras, but real question is when will the next solar flare be the Big One?
