Will it be hitting all around the Earth, or only in particular areas? If any one knows...

It's going to miss earth, just glancing off.

The geomagnetic storm unleashed overnight by the biggest solar flare so far this year will not make a direct hit on Earth, but will strike more of a glancing blow early Thursday, forecasters at the Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colo., said this morning.

I was playing a video from the SOHO www site earlier today, it was a sight to see the blast of charged particles hitting the sensors on the SOHO spacecraft
