Thanks Mars 1,yeah that shows around the range I mentioned first in regards to density and velocity...
Here is 09/06/28:
And the two most recent I just grabbed - wow!

Would increased lightning storms be a byproduct of this???

Your comparison image was obviously taken during a dip in solar activity, or indeed solar minimum.
If you were to compare it to an image from the last solar maximum, say 9 years or so ago, then I think you will find the differences to quite absent.

I have seen this magnetoshpere type of shot many times, it is TYPICAL of the standard fluctuations found in our magnetic field, it gets larger, denser and hotter then the field collapses down after a very energetic breakdown then the process starts all over again. Nothing to be worried about!

well, Spaceweather.com talks about "MAMMATUS clouds" , I always suspected it to happen because of the disturbance in the magnetic field of the Earth. And as a non-related observation , I was REALLY annoyed today about every little thing + having permanent headache.
We should also watch out for the earthquake list, as our Earth behaves like a large magnet so the internal structure of the Earth can vibrate due this incoming magnetic disturbance..
[edit on 28-6-2009 by Romanian]
If a CME occurs near disk center [within some 30 degrees, it will hit the Earth]. And will have some effect, but for a really big effect, the magnetic field within the CME has to be directed to the South. That is much harder to gauge and I don't know of any reliable way of doing that. Energetic particles from flares are most likely to hit us if the flare happens on the Western hemisphere of the Sun, because they follow the magnetic field lines and those that connect with the Earth come from 45 degrees to the West of the disk center.
