In reference to "space weather" topic, as mentioned below:

There is also an interesting course offered by MetEd (Meteorology Education 
and Training) on the subject of "SPACE WEATHER BASICS."   Search MetEd, or 
the main webpage is http://www.meted.ucar.edu/   Space Weather is closely 
related to our world of Amateur Radio and Communications.
