In keeping with my overly-busy schedule (and your own, no doubt!) here is a day-late SpaceWeather News Alert concerning Friday August 31, 2012, the day of the mystical Full Moon @8Pis34 when Fed chairman Ben Bernanke made his stock-market-lifting remarks after the Fed's Jackson Hole, Wyoming meeting about how the Fed "could do more" for the US economy, and a day after Mitt Romney's gift-more-billions-to-yacht-owners acceptance speech at RNC 2012...with huge amounts of gas emitted all around and perhaps someone's explosive temper erupting as well. For after all:

Space Weather News for Sept 1, 2012
MAGNIFICENT ERUPTION: On August 31st, a magnetic filament on the sun erupted in spectacular fashion, producing a long-duration solar flare, a coronal mass ejection (CME) and one of the most beautiful movies of an explosion ever recorded by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. The CME propelled by the blast might deliver a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field in the days ahead.
Check SpaceWeather.com for movies, forecasts and updates.
Note: magnetic activity in the days ahead? Well, that synchronizes with DNC 2012 in Charlotte, NC, September 4-6! And also with Mitt Romney's lamentable lack of magnetism while President Obama has scads of it even though our US natal Neptune (illusions; disappointment; deception) continues its link to his natal Mars (motivation; action; energy) in that 'rockstar' kind of way!
