Slipped past my radar until now. 
Incredible reviews and one for my booklist Roger.
I'll need to read it with a baseball bat and garlic near to hand too.

MAJOR X-CLASS SOLAR FLARE:
"Earth-orbiting satellites have just detected a major X5-class solar flare. It is the strongest flare of Solar Cycle 25 (so far) and the most powerful eruption the sun has produced since the great storms of Sept. 2017. The underlying sunspot is a giant, and it is turning toward Earth with more flares in the offing."

I may have misunderstood this - could they not find somewhere to recharge their batteries? Bloody electric vehicles. 🤣

"Pittsburgh-based Astrobotic, said there was enough propellant to operate its Peregrine lander as a spacecraft.
The lander is expected to run out of fuel in about 40 hours, the firm said shortly after 17:00 GMT on Tuesday."

Can't get my head round all this!
"Scientists at the University of Central Lancashire have discovered a gigantic, ring-shaped structure in space. It is 1.3bn light-years in diameter and appears to be roughly 15 times the size of the Moon in the night sky as seen from Earth. Named the Big Ring by the astronomers, it is made up of galaxies and galaxy clusters. They say that it is so big it challenges our understanding of the universe."

The skylight on our landing looks to the west, and over the past week I have enjoyed watching the interplay of the Moon and Jupiter.

Spaceweather says:
A CME IS HEADING FOR EARTH: Yesterday, a magnetic filament on the sun erupted, hurling a CME almost directly toward Earth. Forecast models say it should arrive during the late hours of Jan. 22nd, sparking minor (G1) to moderate (G2) geomagnetic storms with auroras in northern Europe and northern-tier US states.

Spaceweather says:
SOLAR RADIATION STORM:
"Energetic protons from the sun are striking the top of Earth's atmosphere today following a strong solar flare during the early hours of Jan. 29th. This is called a "radiation storm," and it is currently a category S2 event. Such a storm can cause elevated levels of radiation in airplanes flying over Earth's poles and unwanted glitches in the electronics of Earth-orbiting satellites."

"MARTIAN SUNSPOT" TURNS TOWARD EARTH:
A sunspot so big it can be seen from Mars is turning toward Earth today. Visible through ordinary eclipse glasses, the behemoth has a mixed-polarity magnetic field that poses a threat for X-class solar flares. Any such eruptions in the days ahead will be squarely Earth-directed. Full story
