GEOMAGNETIC STORM WARNING
Once again the Sun (Our Star) has hiccuped. And this time it could be a lovely show in the sky for those of us in the Northern Latitudes.
A strong geomagnetic storm (Kp=7) is in progress following the impact of a CME during the middle hours of the day on Sept. 9th. This could be the first of several hits from a series of CMEs expected to reach Earth during the weekend. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras after nightfall. (Observing tip: The hours around midnight are often best for aurora sightings.)
