The title says it all- what's a good internet site to go to for following old sols hiccups and their effects on the earth?

I like http://spaceweather.com/.

Solar activity is shown on the left, and current /interesting events are in the main body.

Formerly solarcycle24.com, it has proved to be an excellent site for solar and terrestrial information for a very long time. Including solar influences on amateur radio operators.

I haven't seen any yet. We have had bad weather up until yesterday. It is forecast to be clear the next 5 days or so right during full moon. :rolleyes:
