I'm a weather fanatic. During the spring and summer months you can find me with my camera, chasing midwestern storms on my days off from work. Most of my photography is taken in rural northern Iowa.

Caption: Sunspot 1520 and 1521 taken this evening before some clouds decided to roll on through. This sparked an X class solar flare on July 12th. The CME made impact this afternoon around 1800UT. Hopefully this will spark Auroras in the mid latitudes.
