As the title suggests, Sunspot group 2371 produced an M class flare and a powerful CME (Coronal Mass Ejection)  directed exactly towards Earth.  The plasma stream is expected to impact Earth around 12.00 UTC on 22/06/2015.  This event is very likely to send the KP index skyward, (Excuse the pun) so if you are intending to fly tomorrow and the next couple of days, you should monitor the KP index and take it into account when flying in GPS mode.

You can monitor the progress of the CME using NASA's ENLIL spiral here: (Earth is the green sphere!) ENLIL SPIRAL

Safe flying.

PS. Press the play icon bottom left to start the prediction spiral.
