A CME struck Earth's magnetic field during the late hours of Sept. 6th. So far the impact has done little to stoke strong geomagnetic activity. Another CME is on the way, however, and it is more potent, having been accelerated in our direction by yesterday's powerful X9-class solar flare. NOAA forecasters say strong G3-class geomagnetic storms are possible on Sept. 8th when the inbound CME arrives. Free: Aurora Alerts

Isn't one solar flare clearing the solar wind in front of the second the same set of conditions that lead to the Carrington Event? Sounds about right with our run of luck lately. Two hurricanes, then a huge solar flare.
