Consider Yourself Warned

The photo above was taken by Jo Dahlmans from the Netherlands. go check out Spaceweather.com for more amazing photos.

From Spaceweather.com
One of the biggest prominences in years erupted from the sun's northwestern limb yesterday. The massive plasma-filled structure rose up and burst during a ~2 hour period around 0900 UT on April 13th

The expanding cloud could deliver a glancing blow to Earth's magnetic field around April 15th.
I am almost (though not entirely) convinced this will have no effect on your your ability to electronically file your taxes (so don't get any ideas).
