Sun: Only two sunspot clusters but 2015 could end with an outburst of auroras. NOAA forecasters say there is a 60% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on Dec. 30th when a CME is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field. There is an equal 60% chance that the storms will spill over into Dec. 31 st. (spaceweather.com)
 
Stoke had a great end of year goal spree. We beat Manchester United 2 – 0 and Everton 3 – 4. Excellent stuff. West Brom next Saturday away. We need to keep the momentum going.
