First, there is one heck of a FOTW from today – John Petersen was our guest. You know all those things I’ve wanted to talk about here but not on the website – John dove in head first. He said some controversial things and we talked through them.
Also, we had an 8.3 earthquake in the Solomon Islands that was bafflingly downgraded to 7.6. Billy and I were on google+ within 20 minutes and our coverage can be seen on youtube.
Today was the last day for the coronal hole effectiveness. mars opposition was just a few days ago, and we had spaceweather today — that is all 3 factors at once! If the condition index had come out at noon today it would have been B+ … as it stands, apart from our aftershock concerns, the watch remains B-.
