Thanks for the heads up PA0DLO, I just caught a replay of the news briefing.  It's a bit odd to read things like 'For the first time, a spacecraft far from Earth has turned and watched a solar storm engulf our planet' with all the storms I've measured and watched come flying at Earth here at SSW, but I guess that just shows how groundbreaking what we're doing here is.

I tracked down the storm they highlighted in all the videos in the news briefing, voyager1682002 picked it out as a circular storm here @13s.  Very cool to see the 'whole' storm together like that.
