Kp Index Shoots up to 5.5; New M-Class Flare Released

As of this morning, the Kp Index has shot up to 5.5 as predicted. Also, a “new” M-Class flare has fired off from sunspot region 672. I would suggest this will work to enhance hurricane “Ivan”, which will most likely maintain its category 5 status. There is also a danger this latest solar activity will spawn new tropical storms via increased Ocean and Jet Stream current enhancement as per the ‘equation’.
Look for continued aurora activity in higher to mid latitudes. If you have clear skies, you may be treated to quite a show.
