Stuff happens out here too quickly. My folks live generally north of Antar by a good bit and way out in the country. They used to see military flights on a regular basis..and "Flight" is a constructive use of the term. When you see a Galaxy cargo plane coming over wooded land with JUST enough clearance to avoid topping trees and telephone polls? Well... Flying or hovering along in ground effect? lol....
No time to shoot pics when it starts, happens and ends in seconds to a moment or two... Isn't that always the way? We could be holding Cannon 60D's, all lined up..and nothing will happen. THE MOMENT everyone goes for a bio-break? A full marching band of aliens will go by with craft in high escort ...and all gone by the time everyone with a camera gets back to ask what they missed.
AR1967 is wider than the planet Jupiter and its primary dark cores are big enough to swallow Earth many times over. The scale of the thing makes it an easy target for backyard solar telescopes...AR1967 has a 'delta-class' magnetic field that harbors energy for strong eruptions. The growing complexity of the region has prompted NOAA forecasters to boost the odds of X-flares to 50% during the next 24 hours. Because AR1967 is near the center of the solar disk, any eruptions will be squarely Earth directed.
There was then a HUGE dark halo which surrounded the sun for over 2 minutes
