Submission + - Solar Flare Interferes With Radio, No Big Auroras (ibtimes.com)

RedEaredSlider writes: The largest solar flare in several years has disrupted some communications, though it was not in the right position to create auroral displays visible from lower latitudes.

The flare, which erupted on Feb. 15, sent what is called a coronal mass ejection, or CME, towards the Earth. A CME is billions of tons of charged particles, mostly protons.
