    Solar flare affects GPS

    GPS was degraded for about an hour on Sept 6 by an intense solar flare. Radio communications were also affected.

    Interesting. I'm glad I was hiking out West that week and still asleep when this happened or I would be scratching my head while staring at my GPS in confusion.
