INCOMING CME (UPDATED): On May 11th at 23:54 UT, a coronal mass ejection raced away from the sun faster than 1000 km/s. The fast-moving cloud will deliver a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field on May 14th around 14:30 UT, according to a revised forecast track prepared by analysts at the Goddard Space Weather Lab. Mars is also in the line of fire.

I don't know about this glancing blow business.
A lot of sources are saying it was a full halo direct-hit.
Time will tell. I think it's about time to pop on the quake shades in any case.
A bit too quiet for too long once again.
Statistically of course there is ~100% chance of there being a major quake (6+) in the next three days so if it happens, as it will, is that statistics or planets?

The energy transferred to the Indian Ocean plate added a rotational moment which was transferred to the bottom of this plate causing the quakes between Tasmania and Antarctica.
