Solar Weather Update - AR 1540 M1 Flare, Perseid Meteor Shower Update

I know its too easy, but spaceweather.com is the best for Solar/Astral Updates and really cool pics
Large, Long Duration M1 Class Solar Flare - AR1540, facing away from Earth,  Cloud is wide, though.
Plus, Perseid Meteor Shower underway, viewing details follow.

M-CLASS SOLAR FLARE: Sunspot AR1540 erupted on August 11th, producing a long-duration M1-class solar flare that peaked around 1220 UT. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash:
 
The explosion hurled a faint cloud of plasma into space. Judging from the blast site's off-center location on the solar disk, the cloud is probably not heading for Earth. This conclusion is uncertain, however. Stay tuned for additional analysis. Solar Flare alerts: text, phone


Got clouds? Tune into SpaceWeather Radio for live echoes from Perseid meteors flying over the US Space Surveillance Radar in Texas.
The multi-station Canadian Meteor Orbit Radar, sponsored by NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office, is also monitoring the Perseids. Live data are available here. Bright spots in this sample radar sky map show the radiants of currently active showers:
Clearly, the Perseids are not the only meteors in the sky this weekend. The Northern and Southern Delta Aquarids (NDA and SDA) are also active. These showers, which are minor compared to the Perseids, spring from 96P/Machholz, a comet that some researchers suspect is a visitor from another star system.
This is a great weekend for watching meteors--but that's not all. Venus, Jupiter and the crescent Moon are lining up in the pre-dawn sky right in the middle of the Perseid display. The conjunction of planets guarantees that you will see something beautiful even in the unlikely event that the shower fizzles. Sky maps: Aug. 11, 12, 13.

Keep your eyes and ears open for more than usual preparation from the "we're here to help you" people.
We are hearing some chatter, that's all.
