Polar stratospheric clouds spotted by observer in Norway

C#3 Below is only an excerpt.
“A possible outbreak of polar stratospheric clouds (PSCs) is underway around the Arctic Circle. Unlike normal grey-white clouds, which hug Earth’s surface at altitudes of only 5 to 10 km, PSCs float through the stratosphere (25 km) and they are fantastically colorful.”……..

Major X 3.1 Solar Flare and Strong R3 Radio blackout

There’s not much info about it yet but I think it’s earth facing. Don’t know yet if there was a CME. Also “Giant sunspot AR2192 has a ‘beta-gamma-delta’ magnetic field that harbors energy for strong explosions. NOAA forecasters estimate an 85% chance of M-class flares and a 45% chance of X-flares on Oct. 24th. If an explosion does occur, it will be geoeffective because the sunspot is directly facing Earth.” …. Three links below.

Excerpt from the article “On Oct. 18th, Earth passed through multiple folds in the heliospheric current sheet–a phenomenon known as “solar sector boundary crossings.” This sparked a veritable explosion of bright auroras around the Arctic Circle. Ole Salomonsen of Tromso, Norway, captured the outburst in this photo, which he calls Emerald Dynamite:” …………..
