The source of all this geomagnetic activity is giant sunspot 652. Wider than the planet Jupiter, the active region has a twisted magnetic field that harbors energy for powerful X-class solar flares.

I've seen about a dozen birds crash into the windows of my house this year. Ive been at the same location (ohio) for 14 years and havent seen as many 5 the rest of the time. The birds (sparrows, robins, grackels) also seem somewhat agitated. Maybe I am just seeing what I want to see because of all the bird stories recently.
