Material from a Sunday solar eruption hit the Earth on Tuesday, helping to create the planet's strongest solar radiation storm in more than eight years, NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center said.
The eruption also has caused a minor geomagnetic storm, expected to continue at least through Tuesday. Together, the storms could affect GPS systems, other satellite systems and radio communications near the poles, the SWPC and NASA said.
The storms prompted some airlines to divert planes from routes near the north pole, where radio communications may be affected and passengers at high altitudes may be atÂ "a higher than normal radiation risk," the SWPC said.FULL STORY

We need massive storage batteries! Big ones! And we don't have anything like that yet.
We need batteries big enough to power a large city for a year. We could grab all this extra electricity and store it.
Currently we waste gigawatts because we have no way of storing excess current.
This solar storm will add gigawatts to the grid giving headaches to some power companies.
Energy is falling from the sky and we don't have a bucket!
...CooL ... We need a bucket list ...
2012..get your bomb shelter, guns and canned goods ready..i bet the 1% will be in a panic mode if s** goes down..ppl that have nothing to lose will prevail if anything does happen..i would really like to go back to the primitive age where only the strong would survive and the weak would die or gather berries
If I lived on the sun, I'd be scared to death.
