I can't remember ever seeing such a high A index.  What's going on?

You've missed it.
Sunspot 2673 fired off a barrage of solar flares including an X9.3 which is the biggest in over 10 years.
Thursday night it hit giving a severe storm of Kp8.
The spot is still active but is turning away from Earth

Unfortunately this is Britain and it was throwing it down with rain so got to see nothing

Was the rain water hot? Did it glow?  Grin

This is an extract from a NOAA report I saw in another thread, posted by N5MOA:

"Solar radiation storm

S 2    Moderate   

Biological: Passengers and crew in high-flying aircraft at high latitudes may be exposed to elevated radiation risk."
