If You Have Cell Phone Problems Tomorrow, August 4th, 2010…

On July 6th I talked about the sun entering into an active period. Its here! Early Sunday, August 1st there was an eruption on the sun’s surface, usually referred to as a coronal ejection. Tons of plasma were shot into space and are headed towards Earth. These ionized atoms are expected to arrive early tomorrow, August 4th. So if your cell phone is acting up tomorrow this may be why. This is part of the Sun’s next active cycle. It will be interesting to see if there is an effect on our electronics.
