Our Magnificent Magnetosphere

This is a very good article on earth's magnetosphere and why it's so important and what affects it.

I've been seeing some very different and dramatic cloud formations where I live and wonder if anyone else has been seeing the same?

Now I'm not saying this has anything to do with our magnetosphere just commenting on some things I've noticed lately.

These cloud formations are wavy, voluminous, streaking, long flowing strands, fluffy cotton balls and are layered one on top of the other.  

*Also have been trying to find the definition of true north and magnetic north but not coming up with anything I would care to post because the explanation gets too long and involved.

If there are any planet watchers out there who would care to give a simple and brief explanation on this please feel free to do so.  

It's important we know about this planet we inhabit.

In this way we'll all be on the same page, looking skyward instead of always looking down, becoming more aware of what is happening over our heads.

We live in a wondrous, dynamic and evolving universe and we here on earth are right smack dab in the middle of it.
