Dark Plasma Eruption: On Sept.30th, a massive plume of dark plasma erupted
from sun's western limb. A bright CME flew away from the blast site and
might sideswipe Earth's magnetic field on Oct. 3rd.
Daytime Meteor Shower: As October begins, a radar in Canada is detecting
echoes from a fairly strong meteor shower. The source appears to be debris
from asteroid 2005 UD. Don't bother looking for these meteors because
they are streaking across the daytime sky, overwhelmed by the glare of
the sun. You can, however, hear their radar echoes.
