Are you sure? August 19 - an Earth directed filament eruption which arrived yesterday
Check the news.
Yes, I am sure.
SkepticalObserver is not news and the data shows that the CME (if you can call it that) did not arrive until around 06:00 on the 19th (UTC). There was
a very slight increase in the density and a slight increase in the speed of the solar wind at that time. The Bz component showed some very slight and
mild variation until about 18:00 when it took a fairly strong south turn.
At that point, even though the CME itself was very mild we started seeing some moderate geomagnetic activity because of its magnetic orientation in
relation to the Earth's. It may have produced some nice aurora in northern Europe but as you can see, the 18th was very calm (as it is again now).
Neither you, your brother, the Earth's magnetic field, or the weather were affected by the CME before it got here. SkepticalObserver is not news but
he does like to throw big words around and claim that solar activity affects weather and causes earthquakes.
