ao-40 longévity test coming up




EXCEPTIONAL X18 FLARE 

An exceptionally intense class X18 solar x-ray flare has been observed from 
Region 486. It has produced a prompt high-energy proton event in space and is 
associated with a strong full-halo coronal mass ejection (directed heavily 
Earthward). This solar flare ranks as one of the largest of this solar cycle.
will produce a potentially strong impact at the Earth within 48 hours or less.
Target hit time wendsday october 28 1700 UTC.

The space storm is intrinsically stronger than one on March 6, 1989 that tripped a power grid here in Quebec. 
Our local coast guard radio station is actually broadcaasting warnings advice of possible GPS signal 
reduction  and HF signal disturbance. 

A good test for AO-40 keep finger crossed.
