It does! appear that it´s going to be a direct hit.
This is the text from the update on Solarham (I actually have both sites bookmarked and use them often)
"Updated 3/7/2012 @ 14:30 UTC
Incoming! The new WSA-Enlil Solar Wind Prediction is calling for an almost direct
CME impact during the middle of tomorrow (March 8). The solar
wind is expected to increase to over 800 km/s and Strong Geomagnetic Storming will be possible. This plasma cloud is the result of the X5.4 and X1.3
Solar Flare event very early this morning. in the new movie below, you can see that the plasma cloud is Full_Halo and heading this way."
It is a pretty big hit, but if you look at the most intense section of the halo, it is still ahead of our orbit path. Now if another one farts out
today or tomorrow...yes indeed, it will be a dead on smack!
