SPACE STATION TRANSIT: China's Tiangong-1 space station, now crewed by
three taikonauts, passed in front of the sun over the south of France
this week. Astrophotographer Thierry Legault captured must-see images
of the transit, featured on today's edition of http://spaceweather.com
SOLSTICE SOLAR FLARE: The first day of summer in the northern
hemisphere began with a long-duration M2-class solar flare. The source
was active sunspot AR1777. The blast was not Earth-directed, but future
flares from AR1777 could be as the active region turns toward our
planet this weekend. Check http://spaceweather.com for images and updates.
