The biggest Sunspot of Cycle 24, which happens to be numbered Sunspot 1024 formed quickly and has just produced a C2.7 Solar Flare.
Even know that seems small in comparison, it is a good step forward.
The C2.7 flare is the biggest since Dec 2008 and the Sunspot number for Saturday which also happens to be 24 is tied for biggest since October 2008
A crop circle has appeared that researchers interpret to be a message that the Sun is about to emit five Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) that will hit the Earth on July 7, 2009. The crop circle first appeared at Milk Hill England on June 21 and has evolved over three stages up until June 30. Researchers interpreting the complex images in the crop circle believe these represent positions of planets that correspond to July 6 and 7 as dates when CMEs will hit the Earth. If so, this may be the first barrage of CMEs to hit the Earth in Solar Cycle 24. Importantly, scientists will be able to directly study the impacts of large amounts of solar plasma penetrating a breach in the magnetosphere first reported by NASA scientists in December 2008.
A giant breach in the magnetosphere reported by NASA on December 16, 2008 makes it far easier for solar plasma to enter into the Earth’s atmosphere. For the full 11 year period of Solar Cycle 24 which is expected to peak in 2013 according to latest estimates, the Earth will be vulnerable to any Coronal Mass Ejections directly aimed at it from the sun. If the interpretations of crop circle researchers are correct, then we will shortly directly observe the impact of solar energy from CMEs passing through the magnetosphere breach.
According to crop circle researchers, the source of the complex crop circles clearly answers the question of how extraterrestrials might communicate with an evolving planetary civilization. So Paul Allen and SETI take note for future funding projects. Extraterrestrials may be warning us through crop circles that the Solar Surf is about to go up. If so, better get those solar panels ready to ride the waves since the electric grid is sure to wash out.

Disruptions of electricity? Good one! You honestly think there is going to be a big enough CME in the next day or so that it will affect our electricity grid?!
Since when are crop circle hoaxers capable of predicting the future?
Nothing will happen, apart from me, and a few others having a good laugh that people are stupid enough to fall for this crap.
