NOAA Bulletin from the Space Weather Prediction Center:

"2012-03-07 01:03   Strong Solar Eruption; Earth-Directed CME Likely

An R3 (Strong) Radio Blackout is now in progress, beginning about 7:00 p.m. EST today. The site of the eruption, previously active Region 1429, is now near center disk, so there’s  high-potential of an earth-directed CME (coronal mass ejection). In addition, expect the imminent beginning of a Solar Radiation Storm. Analysis now occurring on both fronts, watch here for updates."


Edit; added solar ref page

Apparently the biggested CME for 5 years to hit the Earth between 6am and 10am this morning +/-7hours. I think it's late, as there's little activity registered at the moment, so probably a fantastic opportunity for low-lattitude Aurora this evening.
