Default Celestial fireworks soon?

This could look *very* cool, if you can see it from wherever you live...

The sun sent out a flare powerful enough to disrupt radio communications over Europe today, along with an eruption of electrically charged particles that just might sweep past Earth's magnetic field in time to spark a Fourth of July show of auroral fireworks.

The M5.6-class solar flare, observed by NASA's Solar Dynamic Observatory at 6:52 a.m. ET (10:52 GMT), was almost powerful enough to cross over from the medium M-class category to an extreme X-class event, SpaceWeather.com's Tony Phillips noted. "A pulse of X-rays and UV radiation from the flare illuminated Earth's upper atmosphere, producing waves of ionization over Europe," he wrote.
If I understand the article correctly, this would generally mean increased activity of the northern and southern lights. I've only gotten good 'real time' views of them 3 or 4 times. It's a sight worth beholding.

What's mind blowing is that these "flares" are often longer than many Earths side by side.
